About the Author

Constance Brittain Bouchard is Professor of Medieval History at the University of Akron.


"Constance Bouchard tackles five major themes: the definition of 'family,' the position of women in noble families, the flexibility in constructing who was considered family, the impact of family strategies on early medieval politics, and the 'transformation' of the nobility around the year 1000... A wonderful introduction to those new to the subject as well as a welcome contribution to the debate on the nature of the medieval nobility."--Medieval Review
