The Illustrious Earls of Leicester

[An image showing The Illustrious Earls of Leicester]Those people who have responsibility for finding speakers for club meetings will be interested to know that I have another talk available.

"The Illustrious Earls of Leicester" looks at some of the famous people who have held this historic title.

A good number of them have strode the national stage, rather than just a local one.

They include Simon de Montfort, who was effectively King for a while before being killed at the Battle of Evesham, and Robert Dudley, the favourite of Elizabeth I, who famously and lavishly entertained the Queen at Kenilworth.

If you want a sneak preview, I will be giving this talk to the Community History Network on Monday 2nd June.

All are welcome.
