This panel will explore the ways in which kings were commemorated through literature, artwork, and architecture. Memory can be constructed across a variety of mediums and is focused not only on personal commemoration but also its public representation. The ways in which both queens and kings chose to memorialise kings will be examined in order to bring to the fore common themes of remembrance.
