[From front jacket flap] Divided into two parts, this book exploresthe fascinating lives of a selection of sixteenth-century women rulers and the ways in which they were able to exercisepower and to operate within the male dominated societies of their day. Opening with an examination of the queens fromprevious periods who provided the precedents and role-models for sixteenth-century female power, Women who would Be Kingsthen focuses on Queens Consort and, through a study of the varied and extraordinary careers of the women who becameQueens of France, Spain, England and Scotland, illuminates the conditions and constraints within which they operated andthe extent to which they could overcome them. The second part is concerned with women who exercised authority in their own right. It begins by examining the careers of women Regents and the female Governors of the Habsburg Netherlands. It then looks at the careers of the various women who did not succeed in ruling, many of whom like Lady Jane Grey, paid a high price for their unsuccessful bids for power. And finally it deals with the small but fascinating diverse band of sixteenth-century Queens Regnant: Juana and Isabella of Castile, Jeanne d'Albret of Navarre, Mary and Elizabeth Tudor, and the tragic Mary, Queen of Scots.
