Event Details


From Henry VIII to Elizabeth II, Edward the Confessor to Henry V, King John to Charles II, how should we judge our monarchs, what defines greatness and how will Charles III fare? Three of the nation’s leading historians David Carpenter, Helen Carr and Janina Ramirez join the BBC’s Vernon Harwood to assess our best – and worst – English monarchs. Should a monarch be a military leader, a successful aggressor who believes in empire and expansion? Should they be a cerebral, pious diplomat? Or should a really good monarch sit somewhere between the two? Join our panel to find out.
