Queenly Poverty: the Justified Impoverishment of Elizabeth Woodville and Catherine of Aragon

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    In late medieval Christiandon, images of the Queen of Heaven did not admit much of Mary's humble life; the virgin reigned in glort, swathed in the richest cloths and crowned with bejewelled golden coronets. This was a direct reflection of contemporary expectations and imaginings of the lives of royal consorts: to be the Queen of England was to live in a Heaven upon Earth.
