Welcome to the World of Medieval Queens

Throughout the medieval period—roughly 800-1500—dozens of royal women influenced the course of events in Europe and beyond. Some were famous and celebrated, like Eleanor of Aquitaine and Isabella of Castile. Some were famous and reviled, like Isabella of Angoulême. Some were and still are almost unknown, like Berengaria of Navarre and Ingeborg of Denmark.

Come with us behind the scenes to meet these fascinating women and to immerse yourself in the medieval world they inhabited. All played a part in 700 years of women’s history, and each has a unique story to tell.
