Medieval Women

Medieval Women. A series of biographies of women from the later medieval era. There is a new biography going live each Sunday. The list started as a collection of biographies pertinent to the Hundred Years War. It now has biographies scheduled from several European countries. Women of the Wars of the Roses are to be a major addition to this list. Some are already scheduled, others will be added at a later date. Please feel free to make suggestions in the comments if there is a medieval woman of interest that is not already on the list. It’s possible that they are already on the schedule, but I am very aware of the fact that there are lots who could be included!
