His relation with Q.Frederike was more difficult.
Frederike insisted on calling him "el chico de los Barcelona"/"The Barcelona's boy" instead of treating him by his name or title.
JC admitted that once he exploded and faced her saying he was not a king's son but he had all the chances to ascend to the throne and he would not be downgraded as she insisted.
In the end, relations smoothed and, after all, he was the one who ascended to the throne while Frederike lost her family's and was forced to exile.
