This thesis looks al political relations between England and Portugal in the later middle ages, at a period where the two states were bound by very substantial ties and obligations. Although ultimately this work helps establish the course of events more firmly, its principal aim lies in [he examination of how exactly politics were played out, and by whom. 1n showing the complexity of political interaction from the contrasting perspectives of social, economic, cultural, legal, and military approaches, the thesis expands current perceptions of the mechanisms which informed medieval international politics by looking closely into the various arenas where they developed and were performed. This extends beyond the remit of diplomatic activity as channelled between the two courts to enter the meanders of society and non-governmental political agency. In doing so, the thesis offers an entirely fresh debate on the forms and media of relationship between two European sovereign states during this period in history, demonstrating the existence and functioning of a range of agents and media at a transnational level, enmeshed ill late medieval policy-making.
