Isabeau of Bavaria (1371-1435) was the wife of Charles VI of France, whose weak rule and periodic bouts of madness, left her as effective regent for much of her reign. In this study Tracy Adams tackles her posthumous reputation for incompetence, debauchery and adultery, as well as betraying France to the invading Henry V. By exploring these accusations she creates a thematic account of Isabeau's queenship, finding her actions to be politically astute given the almost impossible circumstances in which she found herself, and that more scandalous accusations became attached to her name only after her death in the political circumstances of the mid and later fifteenth century.
