All the Queen’s Jewels, 1445 – 1548: Power, Majesty, and Display

Tuesday 3 October
Castle Hill Baptist Church

From Margaret of Anjou to Katherine Parr, All the Queen’s Jewels examines the jewellery collections of the ten queen consorts of England between 1445 and1548. Their jewellery reflected not only their gender and their status as the first ladies of the realm but was also a vital tool, enabling them to shape their identities as consort and to fashion images of power visible to their households, court and contemporaries.

Nicola Tallis uncovers the exciting history of the jewels and jewellery that these queens wore and explores their significance as an explicit and unmistakeable display of wealth, majesty, and authority.

The talk is perfect for anyone interested in medieval and Tudor history, queenship and the history of material culture.
