About the Author

Dr. Nadine Akkerman studied English Language and Literature at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam from 1996 to 2001. She has published articles on the Queen of Bohemia's dramatic performances in The Hague in The Ben Jonson Journal and on early modern letters in Early Modern Literary Studies. In November 2008 she was awarded her PhD 'cum laude' (with distinction) for a dissertation entitled, "The Letters of A Stuart Princess: The Correspondence of Elizabeth Stuart, Electress Palatine of the Rhine, and Queen of Bohemia".

Reviews

Akkerman's editing standards are lofty indeed. Armed with digital surrogates, Akkerman's research team checked each letter no less than three times, and at least once by the editor against the original manuscript. Each is quoted in its original language and then, if necessary, translated in English. The edition also prints the letters to Elizabeth, which allow us to follow the epistolary exchanges ... While the texts are impressive, the annotations are a marvel in their own right. Akkerman's careful identification of all persons and events represents a running commentary on the history of several dozen states. * Thomas Cogswell, English Historical Review * Akkerman has mastered the complex diplomatic and military developments of the period. One could scarcely ask for more. * Joan E. Hartman, Renaissance Quarterly *
