Overview

The "Isabella Emerald" gets its name from Queen Isabella of Portugal, the queen consort of King Charles V (1516 to 1556), the Holy Roman Emperor, the King of Spain, and Archduke of Austria, who inherited a vast empire extending across Europe, from Spain and the Netherlands to Austria and the Kingdom of Naples, and also the overseas territories of Spanish America. Queen Isabella coveted the emerald and longed to possess it, after hearing glowing accounts of the emerald from Hernan Cortez, in a letter written to her from Mexico. The emerald known as the mystical "Emerald of Judgment" was presented to Cortez, by Montezuma II, the King of the Aztec Kingdom, at the time Cortez entered the city of Tenochtitlan with his troops on November 8, 1519. Hernan Cortez named the emerald in honor of Queen Isabella, the Queen consort of Charles V, the Holy Roman Emperor and the King of Spain.
