Author(s): Ormrod, W. M.
Title : Monarchy, Martyrdom, and Masculinity: England in the Later Middle Ages [Calling for a gendered reading of monarchy, the author emphasizes both the masculine and feminine characteristics necessary in rulership. Taking the kings who promoted the cults of Edward II and Henry VI as examples, Ormrod argues that the reassertion of the sainted kings' masculinity provided political stability but also countered the perceived gender transgressions of their queens, Isabelle of France and Margaret of Anjou.

Title : Philippa of Hainault's Churchings: The Politics of Motherhood at the Court of Edward III [The author argues that Philippa's numerous births and subsequent churchings were opportunities to celebrate the growing royal family which had experienced a difficult start.

Title : Queen Isabella at the Court of France [Isabelle of France arrived in Paris in 1325 to improve relations between her husband, Edward II, and her brother, Charles IV. While in Paris, she was treated with honor, but her husband withdrew financial support - perhaps under the influence of Hugh Despenser. Isabelle was an honored guest at the coronation of Jeanne d'Evreux, but she had worn out her welcome by the time she left for Hainault, the first step toward her return to England with armed support.

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.].
