520    "This collection brings together a series of fascinating 
       case studies of royal mothers ranging across time from 
       Antiquity through to the seventeenth century, from the 
       (in)famous -- Agrippina the Younger and Catherine de 
       Medici -- to the lesser known -- Judith of Thuringia. This
       collection focuses on queens and elite women who were at 
       the political heart of their respective realms and 
       examines the often tense political dynamic between these 
       royal mothers and their offspring. This volume describes a
       wide range of case studies to illustrate the volatile and 
       sometimes controversial combination of motherhood, 
       ambition, and political authority. These essays take a 
       fresh look at the timeless issues of the 'woman behind the
       throne' and reveal how royal mothers could provide key 
       support for their children both to gain and retain a 
       throne through illuminating studies of both well-known 
       royal mothers, such as Eleanor of Aquitaine, and Catherine
       de Medici, and less familiar figures including Juana 
       Enríquez and the regents of the Khitan Liao in China"--
