The institution of Monarchy was absolutely central to the political developments and events of the medieval and Early Modern world. This conference aims to celebrate monarchy in all of its various aspects, from examining the institution itself to assessing the impact of particular monarchs in their own realms and beyond. Historic Corsham Court, located just outside of Bath, is a beautiful and appropriate setting for this conference, with its origins as a summer palace for the Kings of Wessex.
Our programme features an international group of scholars examining the nature of rulership across Europe and beyond during the period in question. The papers highlight a number of fascinating monarchs, from familiar figures to rulers who have been previously overlooked. The relationship between monarchs and the church, their subjects, their spouses, the nobility and the members of their court will all be explored in addition to other related subjects.
Registration is now open for the conference until March 1, 2012. Please note that registration numbers are limited based on the constraints of the venue.
