Description:

This book is an innovative study offering the first examination of how three fourteenth-century English queens, Margaret of France, Isabella of France, and Philippa of Hainault, exercised power and authority. It takes advantage of a previously unstudied period of medieval queenship in which three queens, whose time as consorts and dowagers in England overlapped, creating a continuous transition from one queen to the next, and thus providing a unique opportunity to form conclusions about normative queenly behaviour and political culture. This study frames its examination around four major themes: gender; status; the concept of the crown; and power and authority.
