Abstract

Capetian women, reigning queens, regents, and princesses; wives, mothers, sisters, and daughters, people the chapters of this book, which stretches from the early years of the Capetian rulers to the beginnings of the Valois dynasty. Our study chiefly examines royal women in France, but also considers the political and cultural actions of women of royal French birth in England and the Lowlands. These women have never before been the subject of a study in their own right, and indeed, French queens have not received the abundance of modern scholarship that has illuminated their English counterparts.1
