About the course

What was the role of the queen in early modern Europe? Past generations of historians focused on kings: male rulers and their achievements in politics and war. Yet, the role of queens was frequently overlooked. This course explores the lives, experiences and legacies of queens in early modern Europe within the wider context of gender, authority, politics, and power in monarchical regimes.
