Women at the Burgundian Court: Presence and Influence. Femmes à la Cour de Bourgogne: Présence et Influence,
by D. Eichberger, A.-M. Legaré, W. Hüsken (eds.);
Turnhout Brepols 2011. Hardback, XXI+182 p., 39 b/w ill. + 26 colour ill., 178 x 254 mm. ISBN 9782503522883. This collection of essays charts the role of women at the Burgundian court by analysing the ways in which medieval women, such as Isabella of Portugal, Margaret of York, Mary of Burgundy, Margaret of Austria made an impact through their physical, moral and spiritual presence at court. During the absence of the prince these well-educated and internationally experienced spouses, mothers and aunts were put in charge of the courtly household or were in some cases appointed regent of the Netherlandish territories for a limited period of time. The youngest generation of women represented by the sisters and consorts of Charles V and Ferdinand I - now forming part of the extended family network - continued this tradition and took it to Germany, Spain, France and Portugal. The court developed into a kind of 'gender laboratory', in which women actively negotiated their position of power, thus consolidating their influence in politics, diplomacy, education and art. Languages: French, English.
