The provisional title for my PhD, funded by the SWW DTP, is Elizabeth Cromwell, Lady Protectress, and Political Culture 1647-1665. I'm interested in Oliver Cromwell's wife, Elizabeth, who, during her husband's time as Lord Protector, was given the title of Lady Protectress. I'm aiming to investigate what this role entailed, or was envisaged or perceived to entail, and what this can reveal regarding political culture, particularly conceptions of power, consortship, and gender during the Interregnum.
