  • Title: Albine and Isabelle: Regicidal Queens and the Historical Imagination of the Anglo-Norman Prose "Brut" Chronicles [The author argues that the prose continuators of the "Brut," particularly the author of the "Long Continuation," draw connections between Albine, the rebellious daughter of a noble king who kills her royal husband and is exiled to a distant isle that she names Albion, and Queen Isabella of France, who plotted with Roger Mortimer to kill her husband, King Edward II, and usurp his power. The Appendix presents an edition of the prose prologue to the "Long Version" of the Anglo-Norman prose "Brut" with a facing page English translation. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
