The French Queen's Letters : Mary Tudor Brandon and the Politics of Marriage in Sixteenth-Century Europe Hardback
by E. Sadlack
Part of the Queenship and Power series
A fresh biography of Mary Tudor which challenges conventional views of her as a weeping hysteric and love-struck romantic, providing instead the portrait of a queen who drew on two sources of authority to increase the power of her position: epistolary conventions and the rhetoric of chivalry that imbued the French and English courts.
