The Name of a Queen - William Fleetwood's Itinerarium ad Windsor | C. Beem | Palgrave Macmillan
B46 Unknown. Itinerarium ad Windsor concerns a central question of the Elizabethan era: Why should a woman be allowed to rule with the same powers as a king? The man who poses this controversial question within Itinerarium is none other than Queen Elizabeth's powerful favorite Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. On hand to provide answers are the statesman and poet Thomas Sackville, Lord Buckhurst, and William Fleetwood antiquary, Recorder of London, and dutiful chronicler of their conversation.
This critical edition of Itinerarium reproduces Fleetwood's text with annotations and a host of interpretive and contextualizing essays from leading scholars. Taken together, they constitute the definitive introduction to this remarkable discussion of regnant queenship, providing a valuable tool for understanding contemporary notions of and underlying fears concerning the efficacy and desirability of female rule in Elizabethan England.
Anyone interested in Elizabeth's reign, the issues about her marriage, and the impact of her sister's rule on how she approached her own sovereignty will find this book enlightening. It is a well-written and well-structured study that contributes substantially to Elizabethan studies. To have the Itinerarium available in a modern edition is valuable and the accompanying essays are more valuable, enlightening to anyone interested in Elizabethan rhetoric, law, parliament, historiography, and the many other topics bound up in this little dialogue.
