Wish List

Machinations & Intrigues of female monarchs, consorts, and regents in 16th-century England, Scotland, and France. Daughters, wives and mothers of Kings, this ‘monstrous regiment of women’ found themselves carving out new roles as rulers and diplomats in a world fractured by the Reformation into powerful religious and dynastic factions. A riveting narrative illustrated with music (by Attaignant, Arbeau, Bataille, Caccini, Dowland, and Guedron), readings from contemporary correspondences, as well as the sonnets and speeches of William Shakespeare.
