In the Orbit of the King: Women, Power and Authority at the French Court, 1483-1563

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperChapter

Abstract

This essay provides both an assessment of the most recent historiography of women and power in early modern Europe but also explores possibilities for new analyses of power and authority through the lens of gender studies and broadening interpretations of politics and power in cultural, social and material forms. It situates the studies to follow in the collection in relation to a burgeoning scholarship on courts in early modern Europe and highlights the distinctions of the contemporary French experience that this volume reveals.
