Original title

Locura de amor

A historical drama with a romantic touch in which Manuel Tamayo y Baus deals with the jealousy of the queen Joanna the Mad for her husband, Philip the Fair.

A historical drama by Manuel Tamayo y Baus about the Spanish monarchs Joanna the Mad and Philip the Fair, premiered on 12 January 1855.

A work of the neo-romantic movement, influenced somewhat by the German dramatist Friedrich Schiller, this theatrical piece focuses on jealousy, to which the story of these Castilian monarchs adapts perfectly. Tamayo humanises the figure of Joanna, and interprets her madness as “madness of love” not corresponded by her freedom-loving husband.

The work has been adapted many times for the screen, the first by Albert Marro and Ricard de Baños in 1909 for the producer Hispano Film.
