This panel will explore the various ways in which memory of queenship was constructed, primarily through the examination of artwork, architecture, and chronicles. The legacy of these commemorations will also be examined to draw links between the differing methods of remembering queens in the medieval period. Through this strand, the links between monarchy and memory will become explicit and provide the basis for further discussion on this topic.
