In sixteenth-century Europe, a world where power and masculinity went hand-in-hand in public and private life, Queens were the exception that became the rule.  But they had to find ways of performing power differently, and especially when they were Protestants.  Jeanne d'Albret was in a unique position:  Queen of a mostly imaginary kingdom, she was a leading Protestant in a mostly Catholic country.  This lecture explores her regnal arts in the context of the French wars of religion.
