Dr Alison Cathcart

As part of the Institute for Northern Studies Autumn - Winter Seminar Series Dr Alison Cathcart of the University of Stirling presents 'They ‘offered to give what they do not even hope to gain’: Ireland, Orkney and Shetland, and kingship in the reign of James V'

Current historiography portrays James V as a Renaissance prince, and discusses his court, relations with the church and France, and his marriages.  By taking a closer look at his governance of his periphery (his western and northern Isles) and relations with his neighbours (in particular Ireland and Denmark-Norway), this paper seeks to re-evaluate James’ reign, engaging with concepts of kingship, and questioning the extent to which James really was an imperial monarch.
