    The author apparently went too far with her assumption that Ferdinand disliked Juana. The chroniclers of the time say Ferdinand had a cute nickname for Juana, calling her jokingly “mother” because she looked just like his beloved mother, Juana Enríquez. Also it is said every time Juana saw her father coming from trips, she would forget the etiquette and throw herself at him, which she would not have done if he had disliked her. Their relationship got worse much later and not only Ferdinand’s with Juana but also Juana’s relationship with her mother. Isabella says so herself.
