This is the first modern scholarly biography of Blanche of Castile,
whose identity has until now been subsumed in that of her son, the
saintly Louis IX. A central figure in the politics of medieval
Europe, Blanche was a sophisticated patron of religion and culture.
Through Lindy Grant's engaging account, based on a close analysis
of Blanche's household accounts and of the social and religious
networks on which her power and agency depended, Blanche is
revealed as a vibrant and intellectually questioning personality.
