    In an age of personal kingship, understanding the character of King Henry VI of England (reigned 1422-61, 1470-1) and the ways in which he was spectacularly ill-suited to be king, hold the key to understanding the disasters that engulfed England during his reign, including final defeat in the Hundred Years War and the outbreak of civil war. The talk will investigate Henry’s personality and his role in the early stages of the Wars of the Roses.

  • Mathew Lewis: The Survival of the Princes in the Tower Mathew Lewis: The Survival of the Princes in the Tower

    Sunday 19th August, 1:30 pm - 2:15 pm


    The murder of the Princes in the Tower remains the most famous cold case in British history. Traditionally considered the victims of their ruthless uncle, Richard III, what if the question of who murdered them is the wrong one to ask? What if there were no murders, and the Princes survived the reign of their uncle and lived on into the Tudor era. By returning to contemporary evidence, glimpses of them can be seen that support the possibility of The Survival of the Princes in the Tower.
