TOP 100 REVIEWERon 30 August 2012
This volume collects together papers from a conference in 2006, and is especially interested in cross-disciplinary approaches to reading queens and queenship.

Given its provenance, the volume is somewhat uneven and some of the papers haven't really been worked up into full essays and remain a little sparse - perfectly fine for a 20 minute conference paper, a little disappointing as an essay.

That said, there are lots of really interesting things happening here: the volume covers the usual (Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, Mary Tudor) but also looks at Isabella of England, Elizabeth of York, Elizabeth Woodville. The essays on Anne Boleyn's scaffold performance, and her representation in Spanish texts are both particularly stimulating.

Overall, a good collection.
