- Book “Isabella D’Este and Francesco Gonzaga : Power Sharing at the Italian Renaissance Court” by Sarah D. P. Cockram. Published by Routledge (2013). Description: In the first book systematically to give evidence of conjugal co-rule at an Italian Renaissance court, and the first full length scholarly study of Isabella d’Este and Francesco Gonzaga, Sarah Cockram shows their relationship in an entirely new light. This book’s analysis of Isabella’s co-rule with her husband, supported by other members of the Gonzaga dynasty, sees her sometimes in the role of subordinate partner, sometimes guiding the couple’s actions. It shows how, despite appearances at times, the couple shared common diplomatic policy as well as human, material, and cultural resources; joint administration; and the exercise of authority and justice.
