Introduction: nuptial fictions; 1. Liminal images; 2. Fashioning the body politic; 3. Views from the border; 4. Nuptial technologies; 5. Curiosity and the art of collecting a queen; Afterword; Notes; Bibliography; Index.
This work aims to radically revise the understanding of the construction of symbolic power in the age of absolutism by examining the fictions that emerge from visual, narrative, and ceremonial representations of (and reactions to) the 1660 marriage of Louis XIV to the Spanish infanta.
