"An excellent recent collection in the study of royal households with deep relevance for both royal and court studies" Elena Woodacre (University of Winchester) and Cathleen Sarti (University of Mainz) in "Royal Studies Journal," volume 2 (2015), page 16
"These chapters, valuable as they are, only begin to open up the large subject of how the activities of court ladies have been variously represented and misrepresented through cultural discourses and visual sources; and how cultural codes and social conventions constrained and shaped the roles women were able to play within courts. Much work remains to be done on these topics, but this collection unquestionably provides a valuable start." R. Malcolm Smuts, University of Massachusetts, Boston inEMWJ Volume 9 issue 2 (2015) "An excellent recent collection in the study of royal households with deep relevance for both royal and court studies" Elena Woodacre (University of Winchester) and Cathleen Sarti (University of Mainz) in Royal Studies Journal, volume 2 (2015), page 16

The Politics of Female Households is the first collection that seeks to integrate ladies-in-waiting into the master narrative of early modern court studies. Presenting evidence and analysis of the multifarious ways in which `women above stairs shaped the European courts of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, it argues for a re-assessment of their political influence. The cultural agency of ladies-in-waiting is viewed in the reflection of portraiture, pamphlets and masques: their political dealings and patronage are revealed through analysis of letters, family networks, career patterns, gift exchange and household structures, as well as their activities in the fields of intelligence-gathering and espionage. By concentrating on a previously neglected area of female agency, this collection demonstrates clearly that the political climate of Europe was often shaped outside the male-dominated institutions of government and administration.
