Abstract

How was political authority exercised spatially? This is a question at the heart of
this exploration of the relationship between ruler and ruled in medieval England.
With a focus on the reign of Edward I, king of England (1272–1307), the aim here is
to consider how a ruler ruled the realm not just by force, military might or divine
authority, but through spatial administration of land and the people that constituted the realm.
