Family relationships were the\ud foundation of dynastic monarchy and\ud provided a crucial basis for the support\ud of the rule of a reigning queen, who was\ud arguably in a far more vulnerable position\ud than that of her male counterparts. This\ud article will examine the situation of the\ud queens regnant of Navarre, between 1274\ud and 1517 with particular regard to their\ud relationship with their natal and marital\ud families. It will highlight various examples\ud which demonstrate the key support\ud that reigning queens received from their\ud family members, which was especially\ud vital in times of crisis. While the paper\ud will also discuss episodes of confl ict and\ud tension within the queens’ family over the\ud succession, it will ultimately argue that\ud support from within the dynasty and from\ud her ruling partner, the king consort, played\ud a vital role in securing and maintaining\ud the rule of a reigning queen.
