📒Christina The Girl King ✍ Michel Marc Bouchard
📝Christina the Girl King Book Synopsis : Governor General's Literary Award, Translation: Michel Marc Bouchard, Christina, The Girl King, translated by Linda Gaboriau (Finalist) Enigmatic, flamboyant, and unpredictable, with a passion for philosophy and the arts, Sweden's Queen Christina seeks to make her country the most sophisticated in Europe.

📒Premodern Rulers And Postmodern Viewers ✍ Janice North
📝Premodern Rulers and Postmodern Viewers Book Synopsis : Pop culture portrayals of medieval and early modern monarchs are rife with tension between authenticity and modern mores, producing anachronisms such as a feminist Queen Isabel (in RTVE’s Isabel) and a lesbian Queen Christina (in The Girl King). This book examines these anachronisms as a dialogue between premodern and postmodern ideas about gender and sexuality, raising questions of intertemporality, the interpretation of history, and the dangers of presentism. Covering a range of famous and lesser-known European monarchs on screen, from Elizabeth I to Muhammad XII of Granada, this book addresses how the lives of powerful women and men have been mythologized in order to appeal to today’s audiences. The contributors interrogate exactly what is at stake in these portrayals; namely, our understanding of premodern rulers, the gender and sexual ideologies they navigated, and those that we navigate today.
📒Unexpected Heirs In Early Modern Europe ✍ Valerie Schutte
📝Unexpected Heirs in Early Modern Europe Book Synopsis : There were many surprising accessions in the early modern period, including Mary I of England, Henry III of France, Anne Stuart, and others, but this is the first book dedicated solely to evaluating their lives and the repercussions of their reigns. By comparing a variety of such unexpected heirs, this engaging history offers a richer portrait of early modern monarchy. It shows that the need for heirs and the acquisition and preparation of heirs had a critical impact on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century culture and politics, from the appropriation of culture to the influence of language, to trade and political alliances. It also shows that securing a dynasty relied on more than just political agreements and giving birth to legitimate sons, examining how relationships between women could and did forge alliances and dynastic continuities.
