  • Title: Constructing Queenship at Coventry: Pagentry and Politics at Margaret of Anjou's 'Secret Harbor' [Coventry, one of the largest cities in England, was particularly loyal to Margaret of Anjou. In 1456 she was welcomed there with great pageantry. In these presentations, the queen was compared to the Virgin Mary as the mother of a royal son and to Saint Margaret as a dragon slayer. These ceremonies underlined her power, not that of her feeble husband, but Margaret did not arrogate the king's royal symbols to herself. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
