With these four panels on royal marriages in the Middle Ages until the early modern era we aim to start a project that will allow us to compare uses, rituals, and diplomatic strategies in different geographic areas, as much as to perceive the importance of affection within royal unions and its connection to the necessity of offspring. This fourth panel aims to connect Royal Marriages to the main theme of this year's conference - Memory - either observing what was left in historiography of some of those matrimonial unions and characters, or by noticing how the memory of some events was built and maintained in the future.
