 Melisende of Jerusalem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Melisende (1105 – September 11, 1161) was Queen of Jerusalem from 1131 to 1153.
This joint crowning was similar to Melisende's own crowning with her father in 1128, and may have reflected a growing trend to crown one's heir in the present monarch's lifetime, as demonstrated in other realms of this period.
Melisende's connections, especially to her sister Hodierna, and to her niece Constance of Antioch, meant that she had direct influence in northern Syria, a priceless connection since Baldwin had himself broken the treaty with Damascus in 1147.

 Melisende:  A True Queen
Prior to her father’s death Melisende signed charters with the title "filia regis et regni Hierosolimitani haeres" ("daughter of the King and heir to the kingdom of Jerusalem")<13> These strong words show a strength and belief in her own power that would be necessary to rule her kingdom throughout her lifetime.
Melisende had her chance to reign without a king by her side upon the death of her husband in autumn of 1143.
Charter evidence shows that Melisende was the force behind the creation of the royal monastery at Bethany.<28> In fact, it is this disregard of document evidence that must lead one to question Mas Latrie’s view of the early history of the kingdom.

Melisendé considered this answer, and rubbed her eyes again, trying to get rid of the flashing lights that were creeping into her vision, and stabbing at the back of her head.
Melisendé managed to lift her head up, and when the thumping and most of the lights had died down, she squinted around, looking for the blonde hair and antennae that marked Anduné out from the crowd.
The Melisendé in that picture, alarmingly lifelike in a way that a painter could never capture, was laughing and in the middle of twirling around, so she was slightly blurred, her hair flying out.

Melisendé woke up rather abruptly, opened her eyes, sat up, and then braced herself against the horrible rush of pain and dizziness she was expecting.
Melisendé gave Anduné one more poisonous glare, sheathed the sword, and stomped off in the direction of the library, taking a longer route than she would have, to give herself time to calm down.
Melisendé was surrounded by enormous books and lots of screwed up paper from the notepad in front of her.

Serving as a trusted attendant to Melisende, the beautiful queen of Jerusalem, Richildis observes and assists the queen in her successful struggle for power and recognition in a male-dominated society.
Melisende came to power during the stormy interlude between the First and Second Crusades, after French and Norman knights had conquered the Holy Land and divided it into four Christian principalities.
After Melisende gives birth to her son, Baldwin, for instance, she announces that she'll not go to bed again with her husband, since her duty to him is done, and no man matters enough to endure childbirth again.

 Welcome to Paul Edmund Norman's The Gateway
Melisende, amazingly unclothed for a free woman, wearing only the brief tunic and skirt, paced about the cliff top, alternately glaring at me and her brother, and scowling with ill-concealed hatred at the two slave girls who attended us.
Then, to the disgust of Melisende, and to the amazement of Arslan, and Jessira, and Phocas, I had taken her in my arms and kissed her as a man might kiss a preferred slave, a love slave.
I glanced up to reassure myself that the river of hot coals was not descending after us, then pulled the girls rudely to their feet and marched them away from the foot of the cliff to the small stream we had seen earlier.

 Melisende Psalter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Melisende Psalter (London, British Library, MS Egerton 1139) is an illuminated manuscript commissioned around 1135 in the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem, probably by King Fulk for his wife Queen Melisende.
The exact date of the psalter, and for whom it was made, is unknown, although it is obviously made for a noble woman of the kingdom, based on the use of Byzantine styles (considered to be "aristocratic" by the crusaders), the depictions of kings, and the use of feminine word endings in the Latin prayers.
The mixture of Catholic and Orthodox elements in the psalter may reflect Melisende's mixed upbringing (Baldwin was Catholic and Morphia was an Armenian of the Greek Orthodox faith).

 Showcases :: Queen Melisende's Psalter
Melisende (1105 –; c.1160) and her husband Fulk V of Anjou became joint rulers of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem in 1131.
However within a year she and her husband were at war – which Melisende and her supporters won.
Though Queen Melisende's Psalter is probably not the earliest manuscript preserved from the Crusader Kingdom, it represents Crusading illumination of the early period at its best.

Melisendé fished around her neckline and pulled a thin chain from under her collar.
Anduné and Melisendé were led through what seemed to be miles of plush carpet, ancient tapestries, felt curtains with cold embroidery and portraits of snotty looking people, some of whom bore vague family resemblance to Melisendé.
Melisendé wandered in, and sat down at their table, showing amazing self-control for once by not squinting into every corner.

 Amazon.com: Queen of Swords: Books: Judith Tarr   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The story, though based on the life of Melisende, the first daughter of King Baldwin of Jerusalem, has enough fiction to make it easily readable and very captivating.
Still, one cannot do justice to the novel by ignoring the period in which it is set: the Middle East in the 12th century at a time when crusades were being waged over the Holy Land.
Melisende, first princess then queen of Jerusalem, has the makings of a great king, but is trapped in a woman's body and therefore always dependent on a man (father, husband, then son) in order to exercise her power.
