This volume provides the first comprehensive treatment of regicide in Britain and Europe from the Middle Ages to 1800 (1300-1800). Using case studies of physical assaults on kings and on members of royal families, major changes and continuities in the meaning and nature of monarchy across periods and societies are brought to light. The volume ranges from Gothic kingship to the transformation of monarchy within the emerging modern constitutional context of the American and French Revolutions. The introduction and the contributions of fifteen leading senior scholars from England, Scotland, France, the Netherlands and Germany provide cutting edge research on the changing relationship between monarchy and society in medieval and early modern Europe.
