The Lioness of Castille (Spanish: La leona de Castilla) is a 1951 Spanish historical drama film directed by Juan de Orduña and starring Amparo Rivelles, Virgilio Teixeira and Alfredo Mayo. De Orduña had directed a number of the most expensive Spanish costume films of the era for the leading studio Cifesa. The film portrays the sixteenth century noblewoman María Pacheco, in a fictitious story that has her battling foreign agents during the reign of Charles V.[1]


Following his defeat in the Battle of Villalar, Juan de Padilla, head of the Comuneros, is executed along with Juan Bravo and Francisco Maldonado in the presence of his wife María Pacheco and their son. After that they swear, before the Council of the city of Toledo to avenge his death and continue the war against Carlos I. A Castilian lady by birth, Pacheco is strong morally and spiritually, and despite fragile health, is strong enough to indulge into dangerous battles against the tyranny of King Carlos I, eventually becoming the Lioness of Castile, symbol of oppressed popular freedoms.
