Dynastic Politics and the British Reformations, 1558-1630

Michael Questier

  • Offers a new approach to the politics of the royal succession in late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century England
  • Shows that while intermarriage with other powerful families during the Reformation consolidated political power, it could also be the source of religious upheaval
  • Reintegrates Catholic narratives of the period which are usually excluded from mainstream versions of the post-Reformation
