Jeanne d'Albret and the Game of Queens in Sixteenth-Century Europe (Huguenot History Month)

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 2nd Oct 2018

In sixteenth-century Europe, a world where power and masculinity went hand-in-hand in public and private life, Queens were the exception that became the rule.

But they had to find ways of performing power differently, and especially when they were Protestants. Jeanne d’Albret was in a unique position: Queen of a mostly imaginary kingdom, she was a leading Protestant in a mostly Catholic country.

This lecture by historian Mark Greengrass explores her regnal arts in the context of the French Wars of Religion.

Cost: £16.28
