Courts without Kings: Crisis and Consensus in Early Modern Spain and Burgundy

This project will examine alternatives to the nation-state as a model for European political development through an analysis of the court of each polity at a moment when the object of that court’s legitimacy -- the prince -- was absentee. It will explore how power evolved as a consequence, resulting in divergent regimes.
