The Art of a Reigning Queen as Dynastic Propaganda in Twelfth-Century Spain

AuthorsMartin, Therese
Issue Date2005

CitationSpeculum 80: 1134-1171 (2005)
AbstractRecent studies of queenship have allowed us to look closely at various aspects of the life of a ruler's consort, from patronage to reputation to commemoration, with a focus on the queens who were wives or mothers of kings. This study, however, will focus on Urraca of Leon-Castile (reigned 1109-26) to examine the unusual role of a reigning queen, that is, the king's daughter and heir to his throne, whose position carried a greater dynastic weight than did a queen consort's.
