Joanna of Austria (in Castilian, doña Juana de Austria; in Portuguese, Dona Joana de Áustria, 24 June 1535 – 7 September 1573) was the mother of Sebastian of Portugal, and later regent of Spain for her brother, Philip II of Spain. She was born in Madrid to Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor (who was the first king of united Spain, officially King of Aragon and King of Castile) and his consort Isabella of Portugal. Her siblings were King Philip II of Spain and Maria, Holy Roman Empress.
Among others, Joanna held the titles of an Archduchess of Austria, Infanta of Castile and of Aragon, and princess of Burgundy.
In 1552 Joanna married her first cousin, John of Portugal, heir of Portugal, of the House of Aviz, who was the sole surviving son of her paternal aunt Catherine of Austria and her maternal uncle John III of Portugal. Joanna's only child, Sebastian of Portugal, was born posthumously in 1554, a couple of weeks after her husband's death at the age of 16.
