The Monarchy Masterclass series will begin with the most famous date in English history: the Norman Conquest of 1066. By the end of that year, the crown had belonged to three different men, ushering in not just a new ruling elite, but an entirely new era.
This talk will explore how the Normans fought to establish a strong monarchy which would cement the unification of England and break down the divisions between Normans and Saxons. It will also chart the rise of the Angevin dynasty, from the mighty Henry II to his disreputable youngest son John, who brought the monarchy to the brink of ruin.
The lecture will run for 45 minutes followed by 30 minute Q&A.
All attendees will receive a study pack to accompany each lecture, containing an original document picked by Tracy to discuss with her in the Q&A, a bespoke feature, detailed timeline and quiz.
