Review:

“Royal mothers and their Ruling Children is an important starting point for addressing this gap, focusing on an aspect that has surprisingly been neglected in most studies on motherhood and mothering ... . opens up a new field of research with rich potential for queenship specialists, since motherhood can be identified as a major power resource for royal women in premodern times.” (Julia Heinemann, Royal Studies Journal, Vol. 3 (2), 2016)

“Elena Woodacre and Carey Fleiner have, with this collection, selected chapters that not only make significant individual contributions, but also fit well together. Separately and collectively, the chapters provide a clear sense of the similarities and differences that existed in the ways that royal women exercised power and authority across different monarchies throughout history.” (Aidan Norrie, Parergon, Vol. 33 (2), 2016)

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 256 pages. Meddling mothers, or maternal mentors This collection focuses on queens and elite women who were at the political heart of their respective realms and examines the often tense political dynamic between these royal mothers and their offspring. This volume describes a wide range of case studies from the first to the seventeenth century to illustrate the volatile and sometimes controversial combination of motherhood, ambition, and political authority. These essays take a fresh look at the timeless issues of the woman behind the throne and reveal how royal mothers could provide key support for their children both to gain and retain a throne through illuminating studies of both well-known royal mothers, such as Agrippina the Younger, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Catherine de Medici, and less familiar figures including Juana Enrquez and the regents of the Khitan Liao in China. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781137513106
