The queen is omnipresent in these tales, as much a hallmark of the genre as its other familiar characteristics: the number three, magical objects, quests, happy endings. That queens occupy such space in these early modern tales is not surprising given the profound influence of so many powerful queens in the political landscapes of early modern England and Europe. This book argues for the historical relevance of fairy tales and explores the dynamic intersection between fictional and actual queens.
