9780521089586: The Norman Frontier in the Twelfth and Early Thirteenth Centuries (Cambridge Studies in Medieval Life and Thought: Fourth Series)

This detailed study of Normandy's frontiers in the twelfth century explores how the dukes of Normandy, who were also usually kings of England, controlled the borders of their realm, and how the local aristocracy responded to their rule. The book discusses ties of land and kinship among the frontier lords, and how the political borders affected government, law, the Church, and the fortunes of the local nobility. It culminates in a major discussion of the annexation of Normandy by the kings of France in 1204.

About the Author:

Daniel Power is Lecturer in Medieval History at the University of Sheffield. He is the author of numerous articles on France and England in the central Middle Ages and co-editor of Frontiers in Question: Eurasian Borderlands 700-1700 (Macmillan, 1999).

Review:

"this cautious, richly researched, and intelligent work of regional history offers many rewards to the patient reader...Power's microscopic view of the Norman frontier allows him to describe the history of Normandy's frontier in depth and, in the process, he brings forth a wealth of useful information and sheds light on a wide variety of subjects." The International History Review Hugh M. Thomas, University of Miami

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The twelfth-century borderlands of the duchy of Normandy formed the cockpit for dynastic rivalries between the kings of England and France. This 2004 book examines how the political divisions between Normandy and its neighbours shaped the communities of the Norman frontier. It traces the region s history from the conquest of Normandy in 1106 by Henry I of England, to the duchy s annexation in 1204 by the king of France, Philip Augustus, and its incorporation into the Capetian kingdom. It explores the impact of the frontier upon princely and ecclesiastical power structures, customary laws, and noble strategies such as marriage, patronage and suretyship. Particular attention is paid to the lesser aristocracy as well as the better known magnates, and an extended appendix reconstructs the genealogies of thirty-three prominent frontier lineages. The book sheds light upon the twelfth-century French aristocracy, and makes a significant contribution to our understanding of medieval political frontiers. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521089586
