With today’s renewed interest in the 17th century and the dramatic period of the Civil Wars, the Stuarts have emerged from the shadow of the Tudors to reclaim their place as monarchs whose lives and loves are equally worthy of attention. Lucy Moore, author of Lady Fanshawe’s Receipt Book, will be joining Linda Porter and Leanda de Lisle to talk about Charles I’s passionately loyal queen, Henrietta Maria, her three daughters, Mary, Elizabeth and Henriette Anne, and Lady Ann Fanshawe, the indefatigable wife of a royalist courtier. Were the royalists really romantic, or is this just one of the many myths about a bloody conflict, so pivotal to the history of the British Isles, that shaped the world in which we live?
