Quite often, it was difficult to find food and a place to sleep for everybody because of the size of the cortege following the bride.

In , Barbara Gonzaga was followed by more than 70 persons and horses, Bianca Maria Sforza passed the alps in accompanied by more than horses, Anne d'Este in by persons and horses. Meier, vol. LEVER ed. When she arrived in at a village in Hesse where it had been planned to stay overnight, there was not enough room for everybody. As a consequence, the princess continued her travel until she arrived at a monastery. However, the monks were determined to keep to their vows of chastity and did not let the women enter.

When Margaret of Savoy passed the Jura mountains in during the so-called Old Zurich War, she had to be protected by armed men from marauding groups of soldiers. The bride usually found herself in the uncomfortable middle position, unable to intervene.

In , Joan of Austria had to watch helplessly several fights between the men of her cortege who would not pay attention to her attempts at conciliation.

Recognizing the problem but misjudging the authority of the bride, he suggests that the princess, if something bad should happen to one of her escorts, should take care of the situation by settling disputes, attending the sick or trying to help if someone lost his horse. When, for example, the cook accompanying Yolande of Lorraine in lost his horse, the men of her future husband would not want to download him a new one, even though they were the only ones to have the money to download a horse.

Their explanation shows that there must have been arguments going on even before the cook lost his horse: Some of them waited for weeks, others for months, like Bianca Maria Sforza who stayed three months in Innsbruck before Maximilian I finally arrived to fetch her. Gregory of Tours, contemporary witness as well as historian, tells us about the wedding arranged in between Rigunth, the daughter of Chilperich I, King of Neustria, and Reccared, the son of the Visigothic King Liuvigild.

The first problems seemed to have arisen at the very beginning of the journey. Chilperich had to use violence to force his people to follow the bride in order to be able to provide his daughter with an impressive enough entourage. When the cortege left Paris, the axle of one of the carts broke, which was interpreted by many of the escort as a bad omen. That night, the first men deserted the bridal cortege, taking horses and valuable objects with them. This was only the beginning of a continuous desertion and theft which undermined the moral of the entire travel group.

Theft was made easy due to the fact that the dowry of the bride was so substantial that it had to be transported on fifty carts, which made it impossible to travel as a cohesive group.

Since Chilperich 20 M. But this was not all. By the time Rigunth arrived at Toulouse, she received the message of her father's death. Having lost all her authority and protection, the princess was taken prisoner by a rival duke, deprived of all her treasures and locked up in a house with only the necessary to live.

But that could not change the fact that Rigunth's marriage to the prince of the Visigoths was off, her bridal voyage had miserably failed, and the princess returned home to her mother. Even if we consider that Gregory of Tours did non appreciate Fredegund and that much of his depiction regarding her daughter's marriage-project is exaggerated, the misfortune of the journey is still quite evident.

The extreme punishments imposed by Fredegund on those who had been unable to protect the princess show that the attack of a bridal cortege was among the biggest offenses which could be done to a family, because by dishonoring the bride the whole group she belonged to was dishonored.

Handing Over to the Husband The first part of the bridal journey ended at the place where the official handing-over of the princess, from the representatives of the father to the future husband, took place. The husband himself was not always present at the handing-over, in many cases he sent a legal representative, for instance a brother or a cousin, to welcome his bride.

The place of the handing-over was generally carefully chosen by the two parties and established in the marriage contract. Marie Antoinette was handed over to the future King Louis XVI in on an island in the Rhine, where a cabin had been erected for this special occasion. The neutral zone between two territories played an important role for the symbolic transition from one family to the other.

The camps on the banks of the Bisasoa river were put up in exactly the same way, the boats carrying the princesses left their points of departure precisely at the same moment and met exactly in the middle of the river. Here, the two women exchanged their boats and left simultaneously for the other side of the river. When the French princess Anne de Foix met her husband Vladislaus II, King of Bohemia and Hungary, in , it was a simple carpet that became the symbolic frontier between the two reigns.

At the moment when the princess stepped on one side of the carpet, the king left his tent that had been 27 G. See N. Nolde, C. Opitz ed.

Bauer, T. Begriff und Inszenierung, Berlin, , p. Husband and wife then approached each other until they met exactly in the middle of the carpet, where Anne fell on her knees before the king. Usually, the couple had never laid eyes on each other before, thus the tension was great. The prince sometimes tried to see his future wife incognito before the official first meeting. Diomede Carafa advises Beatrice of Naples, in case she should see through her husband's disguise, to remain silent about it and to wait until he would reveal himself to her.

When Charles IX came incognito to observe his future wife the night before their first official meeting, the princess did obviously not realize that one of the young men serving her at table was the King of France, disguised as a German.

When Galeazzo Maria Sforza the one who later gave order to erect the column first met Bona of Savoy, he sent his brother ahead to welcome her, but after a couple of minutes the princess recognized her real husband among the men watching the scene. With the help of her father-in-law, who had been accompanying her on the last part of the bridal voyage, the princess disguised one of her ladies and sent her ahead to meet her future husband, while she, dressed modestly, stood and watched.

The poor prince, not realizing that he was being fooled, kissed his alleged bride, and only when Anne threw off her mask he recognized his real future wife. The laughter that followed helped to smoothen the tension of the situation. Physical Changes In the process of border-crossing during a bridal voyage, it was the change in the bride's clothing and hairstyle that was most noticed by the contemporaries.

In the reports of the observers, its description takes up a lot of space. The princesses were aware of the importance given to their clothes and their hairdo by their husband and his court. Elisabeth of Austria, for example, was dressed according to the fashion of the court of her father, the Emperor, when she first met Charles IX in , but she was right away led by the queen-mother to a separate room to change her clothes.

REID ed. Maximilian I gave order that his wife, upon her arrival in , was to be dressed "alla tedesca".

Jadwiga of Poland, when she arrived in Landshut in , was led into a side- chapel of the church to change her clothes. This act evoked such a feeling of estrangement in the bride that she cried all along the wedding ceremony. Clothes and hairdo of Anne d'Este changed slowly during her voyage.

When she left Ferrara in October , she was dressed according to Italian fashion, but when she arrived at the court of France two months later, she was dressed "alla francese". When the princess first met the French court, she was dressed according to Spanish fashion. Before being introduced to her future husband she had to change, so that she would please the king and appear "aymable", desirable, to him. According to the source that tells us these details, from day to day the princess became more and more beautiful, until she corresponded exactly to the French image of a "real" Queen of France.

On the day of her wedding with the son of the Grand Duke of Tuscany, in , Joan of Austria was dressed according to the fashion of her husband's court. The next day however, her clothes were of a strange mixture. While her body was dressed in Florentine fashion, her head was decorated according to the fashion of the imperial court, where she had grown up. Most noticed by the observers was the bride's strange hairdo upon her arrival in Landshut, her long hair beeing braided in one big plait.

Apparently, during the ceremony of the changing of the clothes, the princess had managed to keep her Polish-fashioned hairdo, which, for the wedding, was hidden under some kind of decoration. The French escorts accompanying Anne d'Este in wrote to her future husband that she did not have anybody to help her dress and adorn herself correctly, and that she urgently needed a French lady in waiting to assist her with her toilet. We have here another good example for the fact that the bride could be perceived as pretty and thus acceptable by her husband's court only if she corresponded to the norms 38 Letter from Erasmo Brasca to Ludovico Sforza, March 15th, , cited by F.

Fradenburg ed. Very often therefore, the changing of the clothes was accompanied by a change in the observers' perception of the beauty of the bride. Jadwiga of Poland was described as a well-shaped young girl who, once dressed according to German fashion, should become a very beautyful woman. Anne de Foix, once wearing the Hungarian crowning gown, became more beautyful than she had already been before: The metamorphosis of Anne d'Este seems to have taken place during her bridal voyage.

After her arrival at the court of France, the Italian observers described her as French "visu, verbo et opera". They reported that she had adapted herself so well to the customs of her new home that one would think she had been raised at this court. In the eyes of the contemporaries, the Ferrarese princess had become a credible French duchess. One of its main characteristics lies in the fact that the princesses almost never returned to the point of their departure.

The bridal journey represented thus a rupture with the bride's court of origin, her parents and her hometown.

During her voyage, the princess did not only move through space, she also changed the frame of cultural reference. During this process of change she had to cross a couple of symbolic boundaries which were very carefully staged by the parties in question.

Although most of the boundaries crossed by a bride on her voyage were symbolic, the spatial aspect was very important for the families and persons involved, and the two courts paid very much attention to the space occupied by the other party in the process of the symbolic border-crossings. The handing-over of the princesses had to take place exactly at the border between the territories, and if there was no common frontier, it had to be specially constructed. By sending their daughters all over Europe, the ruling families displayed not only their power to symbolically reduce space but also the networks to which they belonged.

Moreover, as the cited sources have shown, the bridal voyage was one of the best means for political representation. It can therefore be considered as a good example for the interaction of space, crossing of boundaries and self- fashioning of the nobilities of early modern Europe.

AGS Estado, K. Mss Fr. Lettres de Rivera And in many respects George III was determined to signal a break from tradition.

This was the first choice of a bride from the Mecklenburg dynasty, repudiating previous Brunswick, Orange or Saxe-Gotha precedents or Hohenzollern links. As well as setting a more moral tone to court life than his grandfather had conveyed, George III also hoped to re-establish clearer royal control over the appointment of ministries.

He wanted a consort with whom he could establish a compatible domestic and family life, which also would be an exemplary Christian family, as befitted a devout king who was Defender of the Faith in an age when libertine behaviour and intellectual free-thinking threatened the theory and practice of Christianity.

Charlotte had to behave differently, and concentrate on the social role of a consort. Furthermore the royal court did not have the monopoly of cultural patronage; as well as aristocratic women, the Bluestocking hostesses were filling the vacuum left by the death of Queen Caroline in , and Britain was also an advanced commercial society—especially in the metropolis.

As the ceremonies bidding her farewell in Mecklenburg acknowledged by their symbolism of world empire, she was also moving to a much larger country which had vastly increased its overseas empire in through its victories in the Seven Years War. Eger, ed.

Bluestockings Displayed: He had also built Kensington Palace, west of St. The palace served mainly as a retreat in the fresher air of Kensington village, but courts were held there as well as at St. However the coronation of George III was an occasion for solemn splendour. It was also one concerned to display the king and queen theatrically to their people as they arrived and departed from Westminster Abbey, by means of the new gilded state coach, which facilitated maximum visibility of its passengers, through its innovative use of glass panels.

It was a glamorous exercise in the presentation of royal brilliance. As a Protestant denomination, the Church of England did not include regular processions or feast days.

The court worshipped at St. The obsequies of 18th century monarchs were not grand state funerals and were not preceded by a lying in state: The other Christian ceremony was the annual Maundy Thursday ceremony, which usually took place in old Banqueting Hall at Whitehall Palace. The king enacted Christly simplicity before the paupers chosen to have their feet washed; this was nothing like the processions of Episcopal personnel, confraternities and guilds on display in a Catholic diocese at Easter.

The prevailing historiography of the eighteenth century court has been on the decline of the court and the importance of parliamentary politics, though this is now being challenged. Schaich, ed.

Bucholz, The Augustan Court: The king also presided at the closing session. These took place during the parliamentary season, and were a significant venue where the relationship of the crown and the elite could be enacted.

Entry was regulated by the Lord Chamberlain so they were not fully public occasions. Important dates in this court calendar were anniversaries of the Restoration of the monarchy in , and the birthdays of the king, his consort, and his heir. True, there was a growth in the British state administrative apparatus after Hanoverian monarchs still had much socially to offer their grandees and their emulators.

The reward of titles, promotion in the peerage, or membership of the three, very prestigious, chivalric Orders of the Garter, Bath and Thistle , was still important. He was alert to questions of status and precedent, and to keeping his promises in strict order. A title could be a way of rewarding loyalty and local standing even where there was no additionally meritorious achievement in statecraft or arms to recognise.

He knew that Irish peers longed for English titles and sometimes deserved them, or that women might qualify to be peeresses in their own right, to keep alive a title. The king, patronage and court sociability As the head of British society, and the apex of patronage, the king was thus an active manager of all kinds of patronage: Offers of peerages or peerage promotions as well as political and ecclesiastical appointments were usually made through the current head of the ministry, to preserve the convention that a king could not be refused.

Anyone quibbling at what was being offered, or on what terms, could therefore discuss it with a leading Contd. Political Institution? Stowe Landscape Gardens, Andover and London, Nevertheless, the king appointed his own Royal household, and initially, that of his wife, together with that of his adult children when they first had their own establishments, and by convention the king made his own choice with less intervention or mediation from ministers, though as noted above some appointments might have a more political rationale behind them.

The point is, though, that there was nothing structural in the British system to prevent a determined consort to make political or quasi-political interventions.

The concentration of patronage power at the royal apex of the system meant that it was really a matter of personal chemistry or policy by a king whether he permitted this female intervention or not.

George II was seen as subject to petticoat government; Frederick, Prince of Wales, and his son after him were determined to prevent this pattern repeating itself.

Court attendance punctuated the life cycles of the aristocracy: Marriageable girls were presented by their mothers, no matter how wrinkled these matrons were, as the writer Mme du Bocage observed; and on getting married were presented again in their marital status. Indeed another function of the court was to act as a marriage market drawing on the whole pool of potential partners, and not just a handful of county connections. Monarchs had a vested interest in the marital suitability and personal character of their pool of courtiers, and George III and Queen Charlotte were particularly keen to show their appreciation of the virtuous, faithful, domestic, and pious—those who in other words shared their values and behaviour.

This could start very young, sometimes with the royal couple being godparents, and subsequently taking a kindly interest in the talents and promise of those godchildren.

Any child attending school at Eton, just below Windsor Castle, was within the purview of the king and queen. The court was an informal school of manners and morals, and the education of royal children, and also of the young aristocrats who would come to serve them, was of intense concern.

The public buildings and spaces associated with each of these elements were all within easy reach of each other. The court was not a separate secluded world; London was not a residenz-stadt or residential capital like Versailles or Mannheim. It was in any case two cities, those of London and Westminster. The latter was situated along the Thames as it curved to the south west.

A pentagon-shaped collection of buildings between the river to the east and 12 J. Plumb, Sir Robert Walpole, 2 vols. The park was defined along its northern side by Pall Mall, going diagonally form north-east down to the south-west.

Near the bottom corner was the Stable-yard entrance to St. It was not therefore in a secluded enclave, nor was it, like the Hof Residenz in Vienna, an adapted fortress. It had originally been a salubrious royal residence for Tudor and Stuart consorts to bear their children and have them nursed there. The palace was old fashioned and not very impressive, apart from its Tudor gateway, and although it was surrounded by its own park, the public were allowed access to this.

It had not been rebuilt by the Hanoverians, mainly for prudent financial reasons. Yet the roads near the palace became a new circulation centre of court life. Ladies and Gentlemen could promenade along it and exchange the news and gossip of the day or be carried in a sedan chair to their destination. Birdcage Walk, running east-west along the south side of the Park, provided an alternative route between the palace and Westminster Bridge.

Parliament, government offices, and royal residences were all within easy reach of each other and none was hidden behind fortified walls. It was built partly on land leased from the crown and when this lease expired George III was able to download it as a new house for the Queen, replacing the now shabby Somerset House in the Strand, to the north-east of Whitehall. It cannot have felt very private. Moreover the whole building was much smaller than her home at the palace of Neustrelitz.

But then, acquiring and reading books was a pleasure common to both George and Charlotte. The Prince of Wales had a separate suite of rooms before he became of age and moved to Carlton House. It was he who developed the house into a Palace. It was he developed the house into a Palace. Parissien, George IV, London, It was also where an arranged marriage fortunately blossomed into an affectionate companionship.

Although St. George and Charlotte married so young and lived so long that there was even one legitimate grandchild by the end of the reign and considerably more illegitimate ones.

Each of these residences can be where royal individuals hold their own court; and they can consequently be places of different political faction. This is again what George III hoped to avoid. We should always imagine these royal spaces, inside and out, as full of eager watchers and listeners, including servants and coachmen, who would decode body language and dress, and pass on insider information if they could. Neither made sense without the other, and both were built into the calendar and geography of court life.

By tradition, the monarch held court in London when the parliamentary season opened in November. Most landed families returned to their estates at Christmas and then London life resumed in the New Year. By June, London was getting smelly and unpleasant and the hay harvest created extra demand for horses. Country life resumed, coupled with visits to spas and seaside resorts, until the late autumn.

Geographically, when the court was based at Whitehall under the Tudors and Stuarts, it also depended on the river axis for visits to seats at Richmond, Hampton Court, or further down river at Windsor, for fresh air and hunting. George III remained very attached to Kew and the royal couple was peripatetic, spending part of the week there and later at Windsor, and travelling up to London, sometimes only for the day, to hold court. Retirement from the calendar of court life was therefore built into the weekly and seasonal routine, and it is closely connected with privacy.

But just as the concept of the public sphere has multiple meanings, so too does the idea of the private sphere. Yet at both Kew and Windsor royal privacy was also publicly displayed. At Kew, the public could see the royal family dining; at Windsor, the family walked on the terrace in the evenings and could be approached by courtiers, guests, and petitioners. Concentrating on her garden was also a solace when five of her seven sons were fighting abroad. The Court and Popular Politics 17 See e.

Until the s it also protected its proceedings from direct reportage, a legacy of the struggles to maintain parliamentary freedom against coercion by Charles I. However, reports thinly disguised as fictional appeared in newspapers and periodicals. Proceedings and speech summaries were of course freely shared in the conversation and correspondence of peers and MPs with their family and friends, and women were by no means excluded from this knowledge.

Joseph Levine has emphasised how theatrical were the speeches and demeanour of MPs and peers. They imagined themselves as Romans declaiming in the senate, and the classical studies that dominated gentlemanly education introduced future parliamentarians to the rhetorical tropes as well as the moral and political themes of civic behaviour.

Gesture, deportment and facial expression could all add to this theatricality, as could dress. The contests at Westminster, which had a large quantity of ratepayers eligible to vote, were particularly lively. Elections had a carnivalesque character, when normal working routines were relaxed and time was spent on listening to candidates, cheering or lampooning them, canvassing and being canvassed, voting in the open, and chairing successful candidates.

Astute politicians knew that they had to press the flesh locally and appear affable, and they relied on their wives and daughters to help entertain locally and keep electors sweet. He also showed how popular politics utilised the press and became part of the consumer culture of the metropolis, and the nation.

Citizenship and gender politics in Georgian England, Manchester, The Mayor was elected annually from the Aldermen, and had a handsome base for official entertainment. As Mme du Bocage observed in , it too was a theatre of power: There is a large palace built for his reception, but though he does not inhabit it, it serves him upon Court-days, and when he is called upon by any ceremony. On the day of his installation he treats the Nobility and the Royal Family at this palace, which is called the Mansion House.

Sir William Chambers designed one for them, but it was never timely to ask Parliament to vote public money for it. As Grayson Ditchfield has argued, the political contention of the Wilkesite opposition to the king, that he was trying to increase royal power, was at odds with the fact that his acceptance of a fixed civil list actually reduced it.

The coffee houses contained newspapers, pamphlets and other political ephemera, as well as the periodicals, sometimes in bound volumes, and catered to different political clienteles: Ditchfield, George III: An Essay in Monarchy, Manchester, , pp. For there was a great deal of fluidity between various types of media. A political issue which could be discussed at length in pamphlets replete with historical precedent and classical allusions, which might be too abstruse for a skilled or semi-skilled worker, could also be distilled into a raunchy cartoon.

Plays attracted audiences from up and down the social ranks, from the royal family in its box flanked by aristocratic subscribers in theirs, to the artisans in the pit. There was no exclusive court theatre so the king and queen went out to the theatre like anyone else if they wanted to see a play.

Wilkes and Liberty!

The painting then attained wider exposure through prints of it. At the same time there were contrasting lascivious cartoons circulating about Augusta and Bute, and praising the Rev. Any mis-step Charlotte made in her first years as queen had the potential to be translated into a ballad, a broadsheet, a cartoon or an historical-political disquisition on interfering queens in British history.

Wilkes, as Brewer discerned, also revelled in the political theatre that could be choreographed on a popular level. So, as an increasingly popular hero, he attracted gifts from his adoring public in multiples of 45, in reference to the controversial issue no.

Entrepreneurs quickly caught on to the commercial possibilities of Wilkesite memorabilia: Demonstrations deployed symbols such as a jackboot—satirising the name and Scottish origins of John [Jack] Stuart, earl of Bute, pronounced the same as boot by the Scots , and a petticoat, symbolising Princess Augusta.

Crowd behaviour inverted the rituals of civic and legal activity, by holding feasts, usually 30 Ibid, p. Female Political Influence and Republican Response ca. In , effigies of Bute, Augusta and the Speaker of the House of Commons were taken to Tower Hill and executed as if they were traitors. Crowd power could be very coercive: Wilkesite supporters demanded that houses be illuminated when Wilkes was elected MP for Middlesex, just as they were when there was a military victory, and refusal to do so invariably meant broken windows and other damage.

Graffiti was even chalked on the walls of the palace and posters insinuated into its precincts. It was geographically impossible for a new young queen to be unaware of posters, placards and demonstrators, who could throng a royal carriage once outside the courtyard of St. The fear of Petticoat Power Given the death of Queen Caroline as far back as , Charlotte became queen in in a kind of royal vacuum, and she and George had had no prior waiting time as Prince and Princess of Wales, in which they might have developed a role as the focus of the reversionary interest.

So Charlotte stepped into a court and a political culture where the public imagination as well as the political elite associated monarchy with both of these dangers. And the king was able to make clear to his aunt, the politically astute princess Amelia, and to his mother, that they were not to have visible roles at court.

Ancient Greek Linguistics : New Approaches, Insights, Perspectives

The former seldom attended, and his mother did not take part in the drawing-rooms, though it was known that the king regularly visited her at Kew. Yet for all this apparent cordiality, Augusta was in essence the chief counter-example for the young queen.

John Viscount Bolingbroke to write his thoughts on how a king should conduct himself. On the face of it, the book has virtually nothing to say about the role of the consort. There is no advice about the kind of woman a Patriot king should marry perhaps because its intended recipient had been married for two years already , how his wife should behave, and what could be gleaned from examples of consorts from British history: Nevertheless two key pieces of advice emerge: Deploring party as a political evil, and faction as the worst of all parties, Bolingbroke explains, The true image of a free people, governed by a Patriot King, is that of a patriarchal family, where the head and all the members are united by one common interest, and animated by one common spirit Wives, children and servants must therefore defer to male authority: By implication, also, a wife must be a fertile mother for there to be a family at all.

The biggest danger to the Patriot King is therefore the male or female favourite, who will come between him and wise counsellors. Even the suspicion that he has favourites will lower his reputation in public opinion. The remedy therefore is for the Patriot King to practice decorum in his private life, and ceremony in his public one. Essentially she was to take her cue from her husband. But she was no doormat even in the earliest days of her marriage, when she was still a young bride with barely an attendant from her native Saxe-Gotha.

For example, she was persuaded rather than compelled to conform to the Church of England. Augusta was a partner but not a dominator: She then played her cards adroitly with her father-in-law and contrived to keep her children with her. This is not to suggest cynically that she was unmoved by her sudden widowhood: He was not given a formal appointment—she did not want to risk disrupting the existing arrangements, but to bypass them.

It was written partly as a critique of French absolutism, emphasising constitutional monarchy, a peaceful foreign policy, and the desirability of nurturing trade and agriculture. It contains several stories demonstrating the dangers of seductive women, and reinforces the lesson that male and female favourites are to be 42 Ibid, p. Craddock and Carla H. Hay, eds. Taylor, R. Connors and C. Jones, eds. Like his father before him, Telemachus learns to withstand the charms of Calypso, then nearly succumbs to her rival, Eucharis, but Mentor drags him away.

When Telemachus finds a suitable princess to marry, Antiope, daughter of the worthy King Idomeneus of Salentum, she is almost more of a comrade than a bride, and certainly lacks obvious sexual charisma. She even enjoys hunting, when she reveals herself to be brave and bold.

But this rather androgynous type of female therefore obviates the risk of a consort who is a glamorous seductress who could attract rivals. In other words she does not exploit her sexuality--indeed, she is scarcely aware of her charms, and scorns gaudy clothes. All this bodes well for the future, and Telemachus feels for her a rational esteem, not passionate obsession. Unfortunately George continued to rely on his dearest friend after his accession to the throne the following year, and even to give him political office.

Soon the controversies orchestrated by Wilkes over the Peace of Paris, created a frenzy of protest, since the government attempted to arrest anyone connected with publishing or distributing it, using a General Warrant. Wilkes was able to challenge their legality and emerge as a defender of liberty.

The court gossip that had rumbled on since was now out in the open and mutating constantly into new forms as it became bound up with the issues of Wilkes and Liberty.

It took until for George to outgrow his friendship with Bute and perceive it as a liability. To ministers succeeding Bute in office the myth of his secret influence persisted to the end of the decade. Its warning lesson must have imprinted itself firmly on her mind. For Augusta, it was a tragedy that her principled attempts to give her son the right education should have ballooned into an apparently uncontrollable frenzy against her and her trusted confidante, Lord Bute.

Riley, Cambridge, , p. Schweizer, ed. Essays in Re- Interpretation, Leicester, , pp. This was a bargain Queen Charlotte kept as far as domestic politics was concerned. Instead her role was to be a gracious and attractive partner on public occasions: At the court drawing rooms, she was to help as much as possible in integrating the different groups within British society and help raise the monarchy above party. On a personal level, happily she and George quickly proved compatible and fertile and she was soon able to produce a son and heir—and fourteen more children.

Finally, the range of cultural pursuits they both enjoyed in the arts, music, the sciences, and the theatre, gave her plenty of scope to occupy herself, improve and develop her mind with the help of the library she downloadd, and use its resource to help in the education of her children, especially her daughters. Like Antiope, she also had recourse to needlework in the evenings. While her conversation to Lady Harcourt is the nearest evidence available in her own words for the kind of advice George III must have given her, her reaction to a dilemma of her Lady of the Bedchamber, Lady Egremont, also demonstrates that she mastered very quickly how to be a Patriot queen who nevertheless took no initiative in politics.

Lady Egremont was a strong advocate for educating young aristocratic women. In negotiations for the peace terms of the Seven Years War, Egremont and his brother-in-law George Grenville became critics of Bute, and of concessions he proposed to end the war quickly. From September Egremont became increasingly despondent as the French seemed to be going back on their agreed position in the negotiations, and there was much disunity in the cabinet.

On 22 October a Privy Council meeting considered how to present an ultimatum to the French government. The next day, the king wrote to Bute saying that Lord Egremont, evidently depressed and frustrated, was considering resignation. George had learnt this from the queen, who had been approached by Lady Egremont, in tears because she would have to resign her Bedchamber position if her husband left the government: VI, pp.

But rather than argue herself with Lord Egremont, she referred the whole business back to the king. When Charlotte married George III neither could have foreseen the unprecedented extent, in quantity and quality, of political activity the next two decades would bring. He was also able to maintain the decorum of the court. This was as much the achievement of Queen Charlotte in accepting the role outlined for her, in being able to act as a faithful wife, prolific mother, suitable co-hostess at royal drawing rooms, and an apolitical consort.

Unlike her mother-in-law, she was not perceived as, nor lampooned as, a power behind the throne in alliance with Bute, in the difficult first decade of the reign. She only figures in caricatures in thes.

Second, the transient nature of space when compared to construction — since space, in its interaction with social rules and habits, participates of the shifts in form and meaning of those rules and habits.

In the present article I will explore a central chapter in the history of relations between architecture and society: John has helped me also with the English translations of the early modern Italian and French sources.

I also wish to thank the organizers and participants of the workshop Moving Elites, Cultural Transfers and the Life Cycle for their valuable observations. Public are called here those spaces whose accessibility was regulated by the ceremonial — that is, spaces courtiers could freely enter on the basis of rank, such as the salle presence chamber , the antichambre antechamber , and the bedchamber of a royal suite.

I will then propose a new interpretative reading based on an integrated analysis of architecture, decorative schemes, space accessibility, and ceremonial. Its renown is also due to the interior decoration, in which the queen employed some of the finest artists of the time, among them Philippe de Champaigne, Simon Vouet, and Peter Paul Rubens. Maria commissioned it in , one year after the assassination of Henri IV and her nomination to the regency of the throne on behalf of their son, Louis XIII, who was then nine years old.

Among them, the origins, significance, and functional aspects of a layout characterized by two features which were unprecedented in French architecture: Le Petit Luxembourg. Le Jardin, Evreux-Paris , R. The donjon of Chambord is indeed a symmetrical construction: It comprised a salle presence chamber and a gallery and it was provided with an independent access through an external monumental staircase.

As tantalizing as it might be to explain the Luxembourg symmetry through the Italian origins of its patron, one would have to admit that, south of the Alps too, symmetry was often an outward rather than an inward feature in fifteenth- and sixteenth-century residential architecture, especially when considering urban buildings.

Since the palace was conceived during the minority of Louis XIII , Montclos has construed its symmetrical layout as the expression of the comparable status of the king and his mother during the regency. Since the rule might have simply formalized what was already common practice, it might also retrospectively explain the layouts of earlier buildings, as proposed by Montclos. Nevertheless, one can raise several objections to this interpretation.

First, construction work took generally longer than regencies lasted, with the result that, by the time a residence conceived for the royal couple constituted by mother and son was ready to use, the royal couple had usually already changed into one constituted by king and queen consort. Second, not all the rules of the ceremonial reflected existing practices and many of them were in fact never put into practice.

Guillaume ed. Mulryne, E. Goldring eds. Third, the Tuileries, Charleval and Saint-Maur are more problematic precedents for the Luxembourg symmetry than Montclos has acknowledged. The Tuileries royal apartments were not, strictly speaking, identical: Saint- Maur was not symmetrical either.

In the following revision of the project, commissioned from Jean Bullant, the twin galleries disappeared fig. Finally, the project of Charleval was left on paper; its symmetry was therefore an abstract feature which, as shown by the case of Saint-Maur, might have easily been compromised in the translation to built reality. Neither building is formally similar to the Luxembourg in plan, but they both provided the queen and her architect with a new functional model.

Moreover, a model which was simultaneously highly evocative with regards to status and risk-free with regards to decorum. While a layout featuring double galleries for the king and the queen suggested a relative rise in the status of the latter, the model could not be called inappropriate because it had been established by the king himself. The origins of the queen galleries of Fontainebleau and Saint-Germain are far from clear. Seemingly, Henri IV broke a long-lasting association between galleries and male privilege without otherwise making any major change to court ceremonial.

Hence, the two residences read ambiguously within the current understanding of the interplay between status and space: Possibly, Fontainebleau and Saint-Germain hint at a change in the status of royal galleries rather than their owners.

Ritual use of space at the court of Henri IV is a largely unexplored subject, therefore only a cautious hypothesis can be formulated here. There is evidence, though, that a change took place in the use of royal galleries in France around the turn of the seventeenth-century.

Differently from his predecessors, Henri is known to have used galleries for ceremonies such as public audiences and public receptions of ambassadors. Luigi Bevilacqua, a Medicean envoy to the court of France, gives testimony of this in a letter of October in which he reports his own reception in the Louvre: See F.

Beck, P. Bouet, C. Etienne eds. I was met in the salle by the lieutenant and in the first room by the captain of the guards. Once we entered the gallery, I was given a public audience. A large number of courtiers attended such public ceremonies, as well as several members of the royal family, as testified by Camillo Guidi in September Monsieur de Bonneuil came … and led me to the Louvre and to the room of the ambassadors.

Then at the right time he led me to His Majesty whom I met midway down the gallery as he was coming towards me The audience was long and favorable … and one might say that the whole court and nobility was there Monsieur de Bonneuil then took me to the brother of the king, who was on one side of the gallery.

Rather, public and private galleries coexisted as separate spaces. At the Louvre Henri IV had two galleries at his disposal, the petite and the grande: Access to the latter was regulated by the king alone — admission was upon his invitation only, regardless of rank.

The two phenomena might be directly connected. Possibly, the inauguration of a new kind of gallery, serving new purposes, might have loosened some of the traditional connotations of the royal gallery, including its standing as a marker of male privilege. Furthermore, their decorative schemes matched one another: Screech, Michel de Montaigne. Henri 4. Not only did the residence celebrate the royal couple once constituted by Maria and Henri, but it did so in an unprecedented way: Dedicated to a king who was no longer alive, the palace was de facto emancipated from the practical requirements related to the presence of the king with regards to the expression of rank and the staging of court ceremonial.

As to the living king, the location of the building in Paris, not far from the Louvre, made it superfluous to provide apposite quarters for Louis XIII. The unique layout of the Luxembourg is due not to the peculiar status of its inhabitant s but to the uniqueness of its function as a memorial residence — that is, a residence dedicated not to a royal couple but to the memory of a royal couple.

Their power is the notion the viewer comes away with. This notion is also found in the depiction of the Coronation fig. Produced in a number of variants and replicas in the following years,19 these medals were unusual in their featuring the royal couple, as in antiquity,20 instead of the king alone, as typically in the Renaissance. I am grateful to Sheila Dillon for her help on this topic.

Besides, several contextual objections can be raised against it.The paintings Gondi refers to belong to the series of the Medici marriages. Any mis-step Charlotte made in her first years as queen had the potential to be translated into a ballad, a broadsheet, a cartoon or an historical-political disquisition on interfering queens in British history. Indeed, scholars have tended to bypass any prolonged discussion of the female court in favour of arguing that it merely replicated the court of the ruler, although in reduced format, and including only those courtly offices that pertained to the administration of sectors within the palace doors.

Both shaped the specific prerogatives of power and rule. Schaub Dirs. Pemodelan Dinamika. This table can be exported to a PDF. The article brings the causes and types of amputation, the principles underpinning.. LEVER ed. Ladd, D.
