Edmund of East Anglia, Henry VI and Ideals of Kingly Masculinity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The manner in which duty and responsibility could influence and define gender was perhaps nowhere as central as in the role and image of the king. At this highest level of society, the expectations and imperatives to manliness, masculine prowess and bravery, patriarchal authority, sapiential wisdom and good governance all intersected. The king had much invested in his appropriation and performance of masculine identities.
