Four Royal Invitations with Sheila Seymour
The English like to think that the last time we were invaded was in 1066 – debatable in itself
In this talk, Sheila argues that it was much more recent, 1688 when William of Orange came over. Was he invited, or did he invade? It is a debatable point.
And what about the Dauphin, Prince Louis? He captured London and was planning his coronation…
Then there was James I and VI. His arrival didn’t make us one nation with Scotland – or did it? And as a Scot was on the throne, which country could claim dominance – England or Scotland?
And finally, there was George I, founder of our present dynasty. What impact did he make on who was in charge and how we were governed?
It’s a bit of an eye-opener!
