Anna of Denmark

Jemma Field

Manchester University Press

Highlights the transformative powers - and concomitant anxieties - of bodily display by examining how Anna’s choices of jewellery and apparel could visualise her aims, allegiances, and networks of belonging. It critically examines the queen’s fashion and display as she moved between the courts of Denmark-Norway, Scotland, and England negotiating national and dynastic identities. It presents new evidence concerning Anna’s relationship to the almost mythic sartorial legacy of her predecessor, Queen Elizabeth I (1533-1603), and it uncovers Anna’s use of clothes and jewels in the political world of gift-giving, which extended beyond the Stuart courts into Europe. Particularly marked within Anna’s natal network, and her female court circle, it was an essential tool for showing favour, cementing alliances, and maintaining subject loyalty and kinship bonds.
