Isabella of France

Topics: art history France

Stanton has also researched Isabella of France, a powerful queen who forced her husband to abdicate his throne in favor of their son. Because the boy was too young to assume the kingship, she ruled in his place for about three years. Stanton is learning much about Isabella by looking at her things, specifically the narrative art in the margins of her books.
