Course Description

The British monarchy has proven to be one of the most resilient institutions in the world but its role in British life has changed considerably since 1066. We will look at the individuals featured in its development from the struggle for authority to absolute monarchy and finally to constitutional monarchy. The cooperation and/or treachery within and between the royal houses of England and Scotland, and subsequently Great Britain, provide a unique narrative that reflects both national and global events through nine centuries of British life. Topics to be covered include: the Norman kings, the Plantagenets and Angevins, the Houses of Lancaster and York, the Tudors, Stuarts, Hanoverians, Saxe-Coburg-Gothas, and Windsors. We will examine the famous and infamous royal men and women through the lenses of historical account, literature, archeology, films and documentaries.
