This HERA-funded project investigated the role of foreign consorts as agents, instruments or catalysts of cultural and dynastic transfer in early modern Europe (1500-1800). The consorts studied were chosen because they revealed cultural synergies between northern (Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Britain), eastern (Poland-Lithuania), and southern (Italy, Spain, Portugal) Europe and that enabled them to interrogate modern notions of centre and periphery, nationhood and dynastic.
