Abstract
Our article focuses on the image of the widow queen, taking into account the main classifications of the most recent historiography. As a case study, we have chosen the Hungarian queen, Elizabeth of Luxembourg, who became a widow in 1439 following the death of king Albert of Austria in battle. Caught in the middle of the fierce battles for the thrones of Hungary and Bohemia, Elizabeth took the bold decision of stealing the Hungarian crown and flee the country alongside her new born son, Ladislaus the Posthumous, which determined a series of interesting historical events we are hereby going to analyse. The adaptation of these events to the dramatic text of Lope de Vega, El rey sin reino, completes the panorama of the circulation of information in the early 17th century.

Keywords
Elizabeth of Luxembourg, Hungary, Transylvania, Lope de Vega, El rey sin reino, widow queen
