Abstract

The lands of the Angevins comprised multiple polities in the British Isles and on the continent. These lands, since the 19th century, historians have come to call the Angevin Empire because they have sought to answer the two sides of the question: why did these lands hang together; and why did they, in 1204, no longer hang together? These papers are given by three of the participants in a network which has been created to address again the problems associated with understanding how these lands were held together.
