University of Illinois Press

Using questions unanswerable due to limited historical sources, this chapter builds on the limited facts surrounding Anna’s second marriage. This archival void, like many archival voids, is not simply random or due only to family scandals. The chapter consider the methodological dilemmas posed by such voids; and urges historians to avoid replicating the power structures of the past by presenting such voids as natural and inevitable.

Keywords:   historical methodology, divorce, memory, archival voids
