Paula Backscheider, in her study, 'The Cavalier Woman', traces the development, by playwrights with royalist interests, of a female character type who shares with the male cavalier the traits of heroism that make up his cult figure: loyalty, elegance, courage, well-mannered charisma, as well as self-reliance, endurance and good-humouredness. Originating in the civil war, the cavalier woman begins as a triumphant character, who, despite diminishing at the restoration, is soon restored to her glory by Aphra Behn.
