"Daybell and Norrhem have provided a set of studies that are at once wide-ranging, and tightly connected by the issues of women's often-overlooked roles in the exercise of power. This will be a valuable volume for undergraduates, graduates, and scholars alike, addressing issues of archives, material culture, the varieties of "soft" power, and global comparisons, which in total builds a compelling case for the centrality of gender and women's roles in ruling." - James Coons, Miami University, USA "Established researchers and student-scholars alike, and particularly scholars of women's history, will relish this book for its wealth of information, clarity of writing, and new archival findings." - Goran Stanivukovic, Renaissance and Reformation
