Castilian noble. Lay woman noted for her physical and spiritual beauty. Married to Felix de Guzman, warden of Calaruega, Burgos. Mother of four. Her oldest son, Anthony became a priest, the middle son was Blessed Manez, and the youngest was Saint Dominic de Guzman. When pregnant with Dominic, she had a vision that her unborn child was a dog who would set the world on fire with a torch it carried in its mouth; a dog bearing a torch in its mouth became a symbol for the Dominicans. Popular devotion to Joan sprang up almost immediately upon her death.
