Title : La Debolezza del lignaggio. Vedove, Orfani e Corporazioni nella Londra Tardo Medievale [in cities like London, status depended at least as much on wealth as on birth; in this context a widow's dower could transfer substantial capital from the family of her first to that of the second husband; outside London that effect was moderated by giving the late husband's family guardianship of his minor children, but this was not true in England's metropolis, giving the widow more economic power; widows, however, sometimes had to sue to obtain their dower; this ability to remarry, taking the dower with her, undermined patrilinear descent of wealth; but most widows married within the same guild, keeping resources concentrated in the same economic group].

Title : Orphanhood and Marriage in Fifteenth-Century Ghent [The author examined municipal records concerning orphans in regard to inventories of goods, contested guardianship, and marriage.
