About this book

Yolande of Aragon is one of the most intriguing of late medieval queens who contrived to be everywhere and nowhere, operating seamlessly from backstage and center stage. She is acknowledged as having been shrewd and intelligent - an éminence grise whose political and diplomatic agency secured the throne of France for her son-in-law, Charles VII.

Reviews

“Rohr gives scholars and students of medieval France, queens and the practice of queenship a much richer, more nuanced, more meaningful portrait of a complex historic tapestry.” (Theresa Earenfight, French History, Vol. 31 (1), March, 2017)

“Continuing the recent trend toward writing biographies of lesser-known female political figures, Zita Eva Rohr has privileged her readers in Yolande of Aragon (1381-1442) Family and Power with an in-depth look into the life and times of Yolande. … a well-written and researched insight into the activities of the house of Valois-Anjou from 1380 to 1442, a house and historical period which have desperately needed more focused analyses such as this.” (Derek R. Whaley, Royal Studies Journal, Vol. 3 (2), 2016)
