Why should a woman be allowed to rule with the same powers as a king? Readers may be surprised to discover that the man who asks this controversial question is none other than Queen Elizabeth's favorite Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. On hand to provide answers are statesman and poet Thomas Sackville, Lord Buckhurst; and William Fleetwood, Recorder of London, who reports their 1575 conversation in Itinerarium ad Windsor. The Name of a Queen presents an annotated edition of Itinerarium, plus essays by a team of leading scholars who interpret and contextualize Fleetwood's dialogue. This critical edition and the accompanying contextual essays will make available to scholars and students alike this remarkable discussion of the form and nature of English regnant queenship, which provides a valuable tool for gaining a greater understanding of contemporary notions of and underlying fears concerning the efficacy and desirability of female rule in Elizabethan England.

About the Author:

Charles Beem is Associate Professor of History at the University of North Carolina, Pembroke, USA. He is the author of The Lioness Roared: The Problems of Female Rule in English History (2006) and the editor of The Royal Minorities of Medieval and Early Modern England (2008) and The Foreign Relations of Elizabeth I (2011).
 
Dennis Moore recently retired as Chair of the Department of Rhetoric at the University of Iowa, where he taught rhetoric and Renaissance studies. Much of his research centers on the sixteenth-century controversy over whether a woman could rightfully rule England, with special attention to the longest and most learned contribution to the debate, Lord Henry Howard's Dutiful Defense of the Lawful Regiment of Women (1590).

Review:

"This is a very useful book. To have the Itinerarium available in a modern edition is valuable and the accompanying essays are more valuable, enlightening to anyone interested in Elizabethan rhetoric, law, parliament, historiography, and the many other topics bound up in this little dialogue." - Norman Jones, Professor of History, Utah State University, USA

"A very valuable work of scholarship for academics and students alike which makes accessible a rich source for our understanding of sixteenth century queenship." - Anna Whitelock, Senior Lecturer in Early Modern History, Royal Holloway-University of London, UK
