The Monstrous Regiment of Women
By

Rating
In The Monstrous Regiment of Women , Sharon Jansen explores the case for and against female rule by examining the arguments made by theorists from Sir John Fortescue (1461) through Bishop Bossuet (1680) interweaving their arguments with references to the most well-known early modern queens. The 'story' of early modern European political history looks very different if, instead of focusing on kings and their sons, we see successive generations of powerful women and the shifting political alliances of the period from a very different, and revealing, perspective.

Lowe, Choice 'Jansen's book is readable and informative...[it] will stimulate students to investiage further the nature of female rule and encourage historians to incorporate the stories of powerful women in their political narratives.' - Susan Doran, JEMH
