Three Medieval Queens
Print
This innovative study looks at a previously unstudied dimension of medieval queenship, examining the ways in which three fourteenth-century English queens-Margaret of France, Isabella of France, and Philippa of Hainault-exercised power and authority. These women were consorts and dowagers for overlapping periods, creating a continuous transition from one queen to the next. It thus provides a unique perspective on normative queenly behaviour and political culture, formulating valuable insights into gender, status; the concept of the crown, and power and authority.
