In French, the color 'Isabelle' refers to a creamy yellowish color A legend refers to Isabella I of Castile and the eight-month siege of Granada by Ferdinand II of Aragon starting in April 1491. This siege ended in January 1492 and again was said to have resulted in overworn underwear belonging to his wife, Isabella, who'd promised not to change it until he returned....ick.
