  • Title: Writing the Biography of Eleventh-Century Queens [The author explores theoretical practices behind writings about early medieval queens. She uses the lives of Edith, wife of King Edward the Confessor, and Emma, wife of King Aethelred II and Cnut, as case studies. By emphasizing structures, roles, and agency, medieval biography is not only conceivable, but an important contribution to history. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
