Title : The Two Duchesses of Gloucester and the Rhetoric of the Feminine [The author explores the two marriages of Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, third son of Henry IV. In the first he rashly made an alliance with Jacqueline, countess of Holland, which endangered England's ties with Burgundy. Defending her territories proved difficult, and he abandoned her, taking one of her ladies-in-waiting as his wife soon thereafter. Popular sympathy coalesced around the deserted countess with poems and petitions celebrating her as a good wife betrayed. Humphrey was rehabilitated to a degree by representing his second wife, Eleanor Cobham, as a seductress who snared him with sex and enchantments. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
