Seabourne argues that at first the conditions were conceived as guardianship. There were even some efforts made toward advantageous marriages for Eleanor. Nothing materialized, and her supervision became more strict. Henry III held her prisoner until her death even though in those later years she could no longer bear children to threaten the royal succession. Yorke argues that these elements were important for hagiographical purposes. By emphasizing structures, roles, and agency, medieval biography is not only conceivable, but an important contribution to history. The driving forces are his need for legitimate heirs and his strong antipathy toward his second wife, Ingeborg of Denmark.
Record Number: Author s : Sheridan, Maia. Not surprisingly it criticized Cnut's illegitimate son, but it also responded to suspicions concerning Emma's involvement in her son Alfred's death. Owen-Crocker argues that the clothing and positions of the two figures serve to subordinate Emma to her husband.

Although these kings win lasting fame, which was also the goal of Anglo-Saxon warrior heroes, they do it through sacrifice of self.

Record Number: Author s : Michalsky, Tanja. When the cause for Isabella's canonization was advanced in Rome in the early 17th century, documents from the 14th century were gathered. An additional document is a notarized record of Isabella's miracles dated July 27, The original cause for canonization may have failed because Isabella, like her paternal kin, favored the Spiritual Franciscans who were opposed to the pope.
The appendix presents a notarized document, dated July 27, , about Queen Isabella's sanctity. Record Number: Author s : Bruzelius, Caroline. Contributor s : Title : The Architectural Context of Santa Maria Donna Regina [The author briefly surveys three aspects of the church's architecture: the organization of the spaces, the particular needs of Clarissan churches, and the development of the church's design in relation to other Neapolitan churches, especially the cathedral with the tomb of Charles I.

Record Number: Author s : Contributor s : Title : Violence, the Queen's Body, and the Medieval Body Politic [The author explores historical and literary accounts of queens and noble women appearing before their husbands in their shifts to refute false accusations. Wearing a shift was next to nudity; moreover the woman had discarded the dress provided by her husband as a mark of social status.
Frequently this was intended as an act of resistance to salvage a troubled marriage. These stories reflect concerns about the consort as a potential locus of resistance, instead of a support for the regime, even when reclaiming her rightful status. Record Number: Author s : Doyle, Kara. Contributor s : Title : Narratizing Marie of Ponthieu [The author analyzes three texts related to the life of Marie, countess of Ponthieu. She was heir to her father's holdings of Ponthieu but her husband's rebellion against the French king, Philippe Auguste, resulted in the forfeiture of her inheritance.
The three texts analyzed are: 1 the legal agreement between Marie and Lous VIII restoring her land and the inheritance rights to her children; 2 the "Roman de la Violette" by Gerbert de Montreuil in which Marie is acknowledged as patron; and the anonymous "Fille de comte de Ponthieu" in which the heroine's resemblance to Marie is less direct.
Significantly all three texts downplay women's agency and do not portray the woman as holding land. Evidence suggests that Marie took direct action to regain her family's lands and privileges Title note supplied by Feminae. Most notably the queen is seen as brave, especially when she defied her son-in-law, Juan I of Castile, in defense of her role as regent and for Portugese autonomy.

Record Number: Author s : Elliott, Janis. Contributor s : Title : The "Last Judgement": The Cult of Sacral Kingship and Dynastic Hopes for the Afterlife [The author argues that Queen Mary of Hungary used her royal patronage to create an iconography that was personally meaningful to her as well as an embodiment of the dynastic concerns of the Angevin house. Record Number: Author s : Gardner, Julian. Other contemporary examples like Longchamps and Poissy do not survive.
Furthermore, Mary of Hungary's tomb and the extensive fresco program incorporate complex dynastic and sacred themes. Record Number: Author s : Ormrod, W. Contributor s : Title : Monarchy, Martyrdom, and Masculinity: England in the Later Middle Ages [Calling for a gendered reading of monarchy, the author emphasizes both the masculine and feminine characteristics necessary in rulership. Taking the kings who promoted the cults of Edward II and Henry VI as examples, Ormrod argues that the reassertion of the sainted kings' masculinity provided political stability but also countered the perceived gender transgressions of their queens, Isabelle of France and Margaret of Anjou.
There is no obvious reason for this conspiracy except belief in the pseudo-Richard as true king. This may have been an effort by Henry to place his new wife in high relief as a source of pardons. Record Number: Author s : Laynesmith, J. In she was welcomed there with great pageantry. In these presentations, the queen was compared to the Virgin Mary as the mother of a royal son and to Saint Margaret as a dragon slayer.
These ceremonies underlined her power, not that of her feeble husband, but Margaret did not arrogate the king's royal symbols to herself. Contributor s : Title : A Capetian Queen as Street Demonstrator: Isabelle of Hainaut [The author argues against the standard representation of Isabelle as an abused child whose early death in childbirth is worth only a passing footnote.

She had earlier brought lands and moveable goods to her husband, one of her father's lieutenants. In her inventory Isabella possessed many valuble objects, both secular and religious, including silks and pearls. The appendix presents two transcribed documents in Latin: 1 Inventory of the goods of Isabella of Caltabellotta and 2 Excerpt from Rosario Gregorio's "Biblioteca scriptorum qui res in Sicilia gestas sub Aragonum imperio retulere," concerning events in Death and the Maiden Revisited in Medieval Women's Convent Culture [This essay looks at letters and biographies in the convents of Heloise and her English and French colleagues against the social and cultural history of medieval death.
Rejecting stereotypes of nuns as immured from the world in the gothic embrace of a grave, the essay explores a living culture of death in which women interceded on behalf of themselves and others, organized their cultural traditions, shaped institutional memory, and dealt with the administrative, practical, and symbolic aspects of nunnery cemeteries. Abstract submitted to Feminae by the author. Record Number: Author s : Nolan, Kathleen. Contributor s : Title : The Tomb of Adelaide of Maurienne and the Visual Imagery of Capetian Queenship [The author argues that while Adelaide's seal establishes her authority through stable conservative imagery, her tomb sculpture marks her as an individual with a special connection to the sacred site.
Eleanor was probably not inspired by royal tombs she saw on her travels, although Capetian queens' tombs had incised images. Eleanor's own tomb showed her as a living person, whereas the others were shown lying in state. It appears that Eleanor took charge of all these commemorations of the Plantagenet dead.
Record Number: Author s : Shenton, Caroline.

The humiliations of the regency were to be forgotten and the disappointing mother figure of Isabelle, Edward II's queen, was replaced by her son's devotion to the Virgin. She insisted on her legitimacy for twenty years before being restored. Schowalter argues that her psalter models itself on the one belonging to Queen Melisande and that changes in the iconography were made deliberately to emphasize Ingeborg's queenship including representations of anointing and coronation.
Shadis points to her authority and power, often in "non-official" venues, as mother and regent, arguing that she shows a solid and consistent exercise of queenship. Her young daughter Constance was the next in line, but Alice set up an independent lordship in exile and again attempted to seize power in Antioch in Her efforts were not successful, but the author argues that scholars should give her life fair consideration rather than be influenced by William of Tyre's negative portrayal of her. His close relationship with the queen Margaret emphasizes the political side of the barons in their struggle with the monarchy.
It also demonstrates Joinville's admirable qualities compared to the king's strange coldness toward his wife and children. Record Number: Author s : Hughes, Jonathan. Contributor s : Title : Alchemy and the Exploration of Late Medieval Sexuality [The author explores the natural philosophic principles which, for physicians and alchemists, governed sexuality, conception, and masculinity. The source of trouble was sometimes identified as a malevolent woman, a witch, or a supernatual threat like the half-serpent Melusine.
Contributor s : Title : The Creation of a Crone: The Historical Reputation of Adelaide of Maurienne [The author cites a story from a seventeenth century history which portrays Adelaide as a spiteful and lascivious old woman. Hunneycutt argues that Adelaide confused contemporaries by acting as an integral part of the monarchy. Her second marriage also caused concern. Adeliza of Louvain, by contrast, did not take an active role in government and is remembered chiefly for her beauty. Contributor s : Title : Isabelle of France and Her Manuscripts, [The manuscripts range in time across the queen's career.
Some appear to have been used as readings for her children, while others were psalters and books of hours for Isabelle's private devotions. Women feature prominently in the illuminations, and political issues, such as Edward's shortcomings as a king, apparently are also a preoccupation.

Sisto in Piacenza, Italy. In both instances the royal widows drew on natal family ties and regional connections to establish their authority.

Contributor s : Title : Constance of Arles: A Study in Duty and Frustration [Constance's struggle to conserve financial resources put her in conflict with both her husband and sons.

Parsons points to the case of Isabelle of Hainaut who at fourteen performed a dramatic public prayer to win public support and prevent her husband's planned divorce.
Elizabeth Plantagenet, Countess of Holland, at fiften years enlisted the help of the Hague's burgers to rescue her young husband who had been kidnapped by the regent. Contributor s : Title : The Psalter of Isabelle, Queen of England Isabelle as the Audience [The illustrated psalter was produced as a gift for the young queen sometime between her betrothal and marriage. It presents Biblical role models for the edification of the queen. Stanton argues that the psalter is particularly noteworthy for its emphasis on official, maternal roles and for its use of bilingual texts.
Record Number: Author s : Lord, Carla.
While in Paris, she was treated with honor, but her husband withdrew financial support - perhaps under the influence of Hugh Despenser. Isabelle was an honored guest at the coronation of Jeanne d'Evreux, but she had worn out her welcome by the time she left for Hainault, the first step toward her return to England with armed support. Her sexual and political powers call the king's authority and his relationship with his subjects into question. Christine does much to affirm the sanctity and authority of Middle French.
Violant of Bar and the Game of Matrimonial Politics in the Crown of Aragon [The author argues that Violant of Bar actively participated in arranging politically advantageous marriages for her children as well as for members of her court. The Appendix presents the Catalan texts along with English translations of ten of her letters concerning some of her marriage arrangements. Contributor s : Title : Not Safe Even in Their Own Castles: Reading Domestic Violence Against Children in Four Middle English Romances [The author argues that the physical abuse, danger in homes, abusive foster guardians, and forced marriages experienced by the children in these romances served to evoke pathos.
Readers among the gentry and urban middle class were anxious about violence and insecurity but in these romances the children usually triumphed over extreme difficulties with a happy ending. Contributor s : Title : Becoming a Virgin King: Richard II and Edward the Confessor [the author argues that Richard's devotion to Edward the Confessor was part of his effort to deal with anxieties concerning his childlessness and status as the king; the Wilton Diptych expresses his unique identity as a chaste virgin with the implication that it required a special strength and holiness].
Record Number: Author s : Barefield, Laura. Contributor s : Title : Lineage and Women's Patronage: Mary of Woodstock and Nicholas Trevet's "Les Cronicles" [The author explores Mary of Woodstock's impact as patron of a history that regularly took account of women in its listings of lineage.

Contributor s : Title : Albine and Isabelle: Regicidal Queens and the Historical Imagination of the Anglo-Norman Prose "Brut" Chronicles [The author argues that the prose continuators of the "Brut," particularly the author of the "Long Continuation," draw connections between Albine, the rebellious daughter of a noble king who kills her royal husband and is exiled to a distant isle that she names Albion, and Queen Isabella of France, who plotted with Roger Mortimer to kill her husband, King Edward II, and usurp his power.
