    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Noblewomen traveled nearly as often as princes and dukes during the early modern period. The essays in this volume examine various aspect of travel, including reasons for travel, safety while traveling, ceremonial travel, incognito travel, and options for a personal itinerary. The examples reveal a discrepancy between contemporary ideas and practices, which has been largely neglected by historical travel research to date.
