- KurzbeschreibungThis book examines the power held by the French medieval queens during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries and their larger roles within the kingdom at a time when women were excluded from succession to the throne. Well before Catherine and Marie de&8217; Medici, the last medieval French queens played an essential role in the monarchy, not only because they bore the weight of their dynasty&8217;s destiny but also because they embodied royal majesty alongside their husbands. Since women were excluded from the French crown in 1316, they were only deemed as &8220;queen consorts.&8221; Far from being confined solely to the private sphere, however, these queens participated in the communication of power and contributed to the proper functioning of &8220;court society.&8221; From Isabeau of Bavaria and her political influence during her husband&8217;s intermittent absences to Anne of Brittany&8217;s reign, this book sheds light on the meaning and complexity of the office of queen and ultimately the female history of power.
