Gracia Mendes Nasi (Gracia is archaic Portuguese and Spanish for
the Hebrew Hannah, also known by her Christianized name Beatrice de
Luna, 1510-1569) was one of the wealthiest Jewish women of
Renaissance Europe. She married into the eminent international
banking and finance company known as the House of Mendes. She was
the aunt and business partner of Joseph Nasi, who became a
prominent figure in the politics of the Ottoman Empire. She also
developed an escape network that saved hundreds of Conversos -
forcibly converted Jews - from the terrors of the Inquisition.
