TALK BY NATHEN AMIN ON THE BEAUFORTS

Saturday 17 February 2018
02.30 pm - 04.30 pm


JOIN US FOR A TALK BY NATHEN AMIN ON THE BEAUFORTS

Nathen will talk to us about the rise of the Beaufort’s, from the
bastard stock of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, to esteemed
companions of their cousin Henry V, celebrated victor of Agincourt,
and tracks their chastening fall with the House of Lancaster during
the 1460s and 1470s. The hopes and fortunes of the family gradually
came to rest upon the shoulders of a teenage widow named Margaret
Beaufort and her young son Henry. From Margaret would rise the House
of Tudor, the most famous of all England’s royal houses and a dynasty
that owed its crown to the blood of its forebears, the House of
Beaufort. From bastards to princes, the Beaufort’s are medieval
England’s most captivating family.

Limited spaces available and must be pre-booked – Cost £5.00 – Doors open at 2pm
