Letters of a Stuart Princess: the Complete Correspondence of Elizabeth Stuart, Queen of Bohemia

Nadine Akkerman (Leiden/CELL) and Robyn Adams (CELL) have been successful in winning a Westfield Trust grant to help fund the first volume of their edition of the complete correspondence of King Charles I's sister, wife of the Elector Palatine Frederick V. This project straddles the archival histories of England and the northern Netherlands and will make an important contribution to our historical understanding of European culture and politics during the seventeenth century.
