Anna of Denmark

Jemma Field

Manchester University Press

Examines the ways in which Anna conceived of, and transformed, her court spaces in Scotland and England. It moves beyond the narrow focus of earlier scholarship - the modernisation of Somerset House, or commission of the Queen’ House (Greenwich) - and takes a wider view of Anna’s building activities at all of her favoured residences - Dunfermline, Somerset House, Greenwich Palace, and Oatlands Manor. It rehabilitates the importance of Anna’s upbringing as a source for her knowledge of, and interest in, innovative gardens and buildings. In particular, her father, King Frederik II (1534-1588), is shown to be a fertile source of inspiration and emulation in his patronage of classical design, elaborate waterworks, and figurative structures. The detailed examination of Anna’s jointure, income, and mobility furthers our understanding of the financial, geographic, and hierarchic structures that made up the Stuart court.
