Abstract

This strand of four sessions will examine various aspects of Anglo-Scottish relations from the 13th to the 16th centuries. This second session will look at aspects of identity and allegiance, examining: how historical narratives of the events surrounding Andrew Harcla's execution are presented and what light this can shed on medieval English national identities; how Joan of the Tower, Queen of Scots, continued to act as queen when absent from Scotland during the period of her exile in England; and the concept of English Identity, through allegiance and subjecthood across the Plantagenet Empire in the reign of Richard II, particularly in Cheshire, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland.
