    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This book looks beyond the ‛grand récit’ of the monogamous Middle Ages. “Not because they were lustful, but because they were princes,” those with power often surrounded themselves with many women. Through such openly visible relationships, the men and women involved could cultivate a public image, send signals, and – not least – engage in politics.
