Four Queens was made specifically to attend to the contest of Doll Prague 2018.
She won the first place.

The theme given was "Charles IV", so I decided to give some visibility to the four queens that shared kingdom with him, Blanche of Valois, Anna of Bavaria, Anna von Schweidnitz and Elizabeth of Pomerania.

I created one queen representing not only the four of them, but also opening a question about what was it like to be a queen, a suposedly important figure, but so easily replaceable, and usually taken away from home at a very young age.
