Learning history: Cardinal Cisneros in Sigüenza
Our 5th graders and 2nd of secondary students went on a trip to Sigüenza to visit the exhibition about Cardinal Cisneros.
Francisco Jiménez de Cisneros, was cardinal, archbishop of Toledo, primate of Spain and third inquisitor general of Castile. He ruled the Crown of Castile twice because of the inability of Queen Juana. Between 1506 and 1507 he presided over the Council of Regency that assumed the Castilian government after the death of King Felipe I the handsome and in expectation of the arrival of Fernando the Catholic. Between 1516 and 1517 he returned to take over the government after the death of King Ferdinand and awaiting his grandson Charles I.
Our students learned the importance of this historical character of our XV and XVI centuries and how his political influence has reached even to this day. In addition, they visited Sigüenza and had a great day.
