Rise of Female Kings in Europe, 1300-1800 by Monter, William
Rise of Female Kings in Europe, 1300-1800
by Monter, William
 
Surveying the governmental records of 30 women monarchs -- the famous (Mary Stuart, Elizabeth I, Catherine the Great) as well as the obscure (Charlotte of Cyprus, Isabel Clara Eugenia of the Netherlands) -- Monter describing how each of them achieved sovereign authority, wielded it, and (often) abandoned it. He argues that Europe's female kings, who ruled by divine right, experienced no significant political opposition on account of their gender.
