La Reina de Oros
The Regent Queen María Cristina of Borbón (1833-1840) led one of the most turbulent periods and famous personal scandals of the XIX Century.
On the one hand, her political ambition led her to countless palace intrigues to maintain her influence over her daughter, Isabel II, or to finance a military adventure in Ecuador. On the other, her passionate temperament, and keen on riches led her to a secret marriage with Fernando Muñoz after the death of her husband, Ferdinand VII, to hide their illegitimate offspring, or to an accusation of having stolen the jewels of the Crown.
The live of the woman who guided the destiny of Spain in the delicate transition that ended the Old Regime has never been told like this before.
