  • Title: Two Capetian Queens as the Foreground for an Aristocrats's Anxiety in the "Vie de Saint Louis" [The author argues that Joinville's text is really about his own qualities in comparison to the king's. His close relationship with the queen Margaret emphasizes the political side of the barons in their struggle with the monarchy. It also demonstrates Joinville's admirable qualities compared to the king's strange coldness toward his wife and children. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
