The Society will be hosting a special guest lecture entitled
‘Fathers and sons: the politics of intergenerational conflict and the Hanoverian monarchy’
Dr Andrew Thompson (Cambridge University)
Wednesday, 9 July 2014, 6pm-8pm
Paul Mellon Centre 16 Bedford Square London WC1B 3JA
To mark the 300th anniversary of the Hanoverian accession, the Society for Court Studies has invited Dr Andrew Thompson to give a special Hanoverian lecture. His paper will address the fraught relations between the generations of the Hanoverian royal family. It will consider the structural pressures and psychological factors that compounded tensions and explores the wider impact of disagreement on the royal family itself and politics more generally.
Andrew Thompson is author of Britain, Hanover and the Protestant interest, 1688-1756 (Boydell & Brewer 2006) and George II: King and Elector (Yale University Press 2011).
All welcome. Refreshments, including wine, will be served.
Tickets are £10 for members of the Society for Court Studies and £12 for others. To book tickets click here.
