Constance, Mother of Arthur

About this Image:

That which strikes us as the principle attribute of Constance is power -- power of imagination, of will, of passion, of affection, of pride, the moral energy, that faculty which is principally exercised in self-control, and gives consistency to the rest, is deficient; or rather, to speak more correctly, the extraordinary development of sensibility and imagination, which lends to the character its rich poetical colouring, leaves the other qualities comparatively subordinate. Hence it is that the whole complexion of the character, notwithstanding its amazing grandeur, is so exquisitely feminine.

From Charles Knight's The Pictorial Edition of the Works of Shakspere, quoting Mrs. Jameson's comments from "The Characteristics of Women," about Constance, mother of Arthur, Duke of Bretagne, in Shakespeare's King John.
