Log-in for full text

Rather than the everyday or calendrical, the focus is on events in the life cycle that fundamentally articulated and confirmed Anna’s position as a woman, as queen consort, and as a figurehead of the national religion: the births and baptisms of her children, her churching ceremonies, the betrothal and wedding of her daughter Elizabeth, and her position in England during James’s progress to Scotland. The book finishes with an examination of Anna’s last performance: her death and funeral. Consideration is given to the space chosen for her laying-in-state, the material goods provided for her mourning, the form and nature of the procession, and the socio-political hierarchy of her household as seen through the funerary accounts.
