Abstract

The volume "Reginae Iberia" is a compilation of some of the papers presented at the International Congress on Queens and Infantas in Medieval Iberian Kingdoms, held in Santiago de Compostela from the 21st to 23rd May 2014. The editors of this volume, Miguel García and Silvia Cernadas, selected a total of 12 articles, which despite focussing on very different topics, all served to emphasise a shared central idea. With these articles, the editors aimed to present a range of new and complementary readings on the Iberian monarchy, whilst highlighting the leading role of women at the heart of these houses and challenging the perception that they served purely for decorative or reproductive purposes
