Contributor(s):
Title : Edmund of East Anglia, Henry VI and Ideals of Kingly Masculinity [The author argues that Lydgate's "Life" of King Edmund was intended to instruct the young Henry VI in kingly behaviors.

Author(s): Ormrod, W. M.
Contributor(s):
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 : 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.].

Title : The Invisible Spouse: Henry VI, Arthur, and the Fifteenth-Century Subject [The author examines two narratives concerned with sovereignty and the queen's body: "Collectarium mansuetudinum et bonorum morum regis Henrici VI" by John Blacman, Henry VI's spiritual director, and Malory's "Morte Darthur." In both texts the threat to the king lies in the queen's body. Her sexual and political powers call the king's authority and his relationship with his subjects into question. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
