Title : AElfgifu of Northampton: Cnut the Great's Other Woman [AElfgifu came from a prominent noble family in Mercia. Cnut either married her or took her as a concubine during his father's invasion of England in 1013. She had two sons with whom she ruled Norway as Cnut's regent. Bolton argues that AElfgifu and Emma of Normandy (King AEthelred's widow who married Cnut) should not be viewed in opposition but as quite similar powerful women who sought to ensure their sons' royal successions.

Title : Leonor Teles: Representations of a Portuguese Queen [When describing Oueen Leonor Teles, the chronicles Fernão Lopes (c.1380- c. 1459) depicts her as a worthy antagonist of his hero, King João I. Both good and bad qualities are attributed to Leonor, all of which help support João's succession and Portugese independence from Castile. Most notably the queen is seen as brave, especially when she defied her son-in-law, Juan I of Castile, in defense of her role as regent and for Portugese autonomy. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
