The title "Infante" was born by all male descendants of Iberian kings other than the heir apparent, i.e., all sons of the king but the oldest living son. "Infanta" was used for all the daughters because princesses were seldom ever heirs apparent.

the answer is wrong. Prince (principe) is the apparent heir and Infante is usually not The prince.

You should probably accept Isabel for Isabella, as that is how it is spelled and pronounced in Spain.

Yes it was. Isabel is the one and only name in spanish for that queen. usually Jetpunk allows the real, non-translated names so the claim to add Isabel is quite reasonable.(although this is pariticulary easy to guess)

I second that. The spanish name is Isabel, therefore it should be accepted.

And if you want to be reeeeeeally picky, it should be CE instead of AD.
