Abstract [en]

The article explores the tale about the Danish queen Margareta who, during her regency of Sweden (1389-1412), was thought to have struck a coin with a mark of her female genitals to the eternal shame and ignominy of the Swedes. This tale was first told in Chronica regni Gothorum, a chronicle written by Ericus Olai in the 1470s, and was later repeated and commented on in the 16th and especially 17th centuries when the Danes were described as the hereditary foes of Sweden. The aim is to analyse the offensive meanings of the story from the analytical perspective of the history of emotions, and more precisely to examine how negative emotions like contempt, scorn and disgust were mobilized and communicated in connection with the tale. The analysis begins from a close reading of the chronicles and commentaries to uncover emotional reactions and terms to be further analysed in the broader contexts of propaganda and early modern Swedish society. A further aim is to make a critical contribution to the discussion about the role of genitals, emotions and biological sex in premodern notions of gender.
