Description

Too often when we think about the history of a country we think only of kings, lords, castles, and battles. When we think of queens we think of rulers like Elizabeth I and Victoria, but what about the queens who sat beside their warrior husbands? This podcast is an alternative history of Medieval and Early Modern England, seen through the lives of its queens.

43 - Anne Boleyn (3): Mistress on the Throne

Author: Queens of England Podcast
Sun, Mar 12, 2017


Often when we think about Anne Boleyn we see either the sultry mistress or the tragic victim - but people often forget that for 3 years she was a queen consort and don't judge her time on the throne on its merits. Today, we see how her reign stacks up to that of her forebears.

In 1100, Henry I became King of England after the suspicious death of William Rufus, but his accession was contested.  To help placate his Anglo-Saxon subjects, he chose as his queen one of their own, the Scottish princess Matilda.  She would prove to be far more than just dynastic window-dressing, becoming one of the most powerful queens in English mediaeval history.

Sun, Jun 14, 2015


Matilda of Flanders was born to a family that counted as branches of it's family tree practically every important noble house in Northern Europe and so life was expected to be breeze.  But as we'll find out, Matilda rarely did things the easy way.

This episode looks at some of her immediate predecessors as Queen of England, before covering at the great controversy surrounding her marriage to William the Bastard of Normandy, finally looking at some of her actions as Duchess before the Norman invasion of England.

This seems at first to be a really easy question to answer: you had to marry a King.  Simple right?  But when you dig deeper this turns out to be a very superficial answer because it doesn't really answer the fundamental aspect of the question.   

In this episode we discover the traits and qualities that a queen was supposed to have in Mediaeval England, and examine what kinds of power they could wield
