Beginning with a little story about Queen Blanche of Castile, the illness of her daughter Isabelle of France, and the prayers of a holy woman who may have been Lutgard of Aywières, the introduction sets up the book by surveying the historiography of French royal power and women’s holiness, laying out the overall argument, and providing brief chapter previews.

Keywords:   Queen Blanche of Castile, Isabelle of France, Lutgard of Aywières
