Leanda de Lisle Talk: White King - Charles I  Traitor, Murderer, Martyr

 

Leanda de Lisle Talk: White King – Charles I Traitor, Murderer, Martyr in The Heritage Room at Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre on Sunday 1st July.

To some Charles I was a martyr crowned in white, the symbol of innocence: to others he was the hated White King of ancient myths. Previously unseen royal correspondence informs a fresh portrait of a king who was principled, radical and brave, but also fatally blinkered, and a maligned queen who was a warrior and political player as impressive as any Tudor consort. Join Leanda De Lisle for a discussion on her new book.
