Description

This session will examine the impact of dynastic change in kingdoms across Europe over the course of the Middle Ages. The papers will investigate aspects of dynastic transition and the legitimacy of new dynasties including the Valois in France and the Trastamara dynasty in Castile. Challenges to existing dynasties will be discussed including the successful overthrow of the regent Leonor Teles in Portugal which enabled the rise of the new Avis dynasty in the late fourteenth century. The use of texts to justify or legitimate dynastic change will also be investigated in the context of the 'Encomium Emmae Reginae'. Taken together, these papers will shed new light on the dynamics of dynastic change in the Middle Ages and its effect on the practice of medieval monarchy.
