This history deals with the bad girls of England's medieval royal dynasties, the queens who earned themselves a notorious reputation. Some of them are well known and have been the subject of biography—Eleanor of Aquitaine, Emma of Normandy, Isabella of France, and Anne Boleyn, for example—while others have not been written about outside academic journals. The appeal of these notorious queens, apart from their shared taste for witchcraft, murder, adultery, and incest, is that because they were notorious they attracted a great deal of attention during their lifetimes. This study reveals much about the role of the medieval queen and the evolution of the role that led, ultimately, to the reign of Elizabeth I and a new concept of queenship.
About the Author: Elizabeth Norton studied archaeology and anthropology at Cambridge, specialising in Anglo-Saxon and later medieval topics. Her Masters from the University of Oxford was on Anglo-Saxon England.
