This biography of Queen María de Molina thematically explores her life and demonstrates her collective exercise of power and authority as queen. Throughout her public life, María de Molina’s resilient determination, as queen and later as regent, enabled her to not only work tirelessly to establish an effective governing partnership with her husband King Sancho IV, which never occurred, but also to establish the legitimacy of her children and their heirs and their right to rule. Such legitimacy enabled Queen María de Molina’s son and grandson, under her tutelage, to fend off other monarchs and belligerent nobles. The author demonstrates the queen’s ability to govern the Kingdom of Castile-León as a partner with her husband King Sancho IV, a partnership that can be described as an official union. A major theme of this study is María de Molina’s role as dowager queen and regent as she continued to exercise her queenly power and authority to protect the throne of her son Fernando IV and, later, of her grandson Alfonso XI, and to provide peace and stability for the Kingdom of Castile-León.

About the Author:

Paulette Lynn Pepin is associate professor of history at the University of New Haven.

Review:

This new biography provides an engaging and accessible portrait of one of the most important queens of medieval Castile. For those unfamiliar with the life of María de Molina, this work provides an excellent introduction. Pepin brings to life the challenges that María had to overcome and highlights her successful rule as queen in partnership with first her husband and later her son. María’s career is an important case study for both queenship in the Middle Ages and Iberian history in this fascinating era. (Elena Woodacre, University of Winchester)

This study makes the eventful life of María de Molina accessible for the first time in English. Queen-consort to Sancho IV of Castile and twice regent for her son and grandson, María de Molina is a remarkable example of women’s power in medieval Iberia. The attention Pepin gives to her career is most welcome. (Janna Bianchini, University of Maryland)

Professor Pepin’s book is an excellent medium to make Maria de Molina’s political life more easily accessible to an English-speaking audience, showing a remarkable effort of translation of medieval Spanish sources, and written by someone who has been in a vivid closeness with the places Queen Maria visited and lived in. (The Catholic Historical Review)
