Each and every monarch of the British Empire has a claim to fame. This class will cover the lives of every British king and queen in history. We will discuss the scandals, the wars, and the festivals related to each monarch. A major focus will be the enemies of each of the British monarchs and the religion they followed. We’ll also take a look at the palaces that the kings and queens lived in.
Students will be encouraged to make connections between the monarchs of Great Britain and contemporaneous historical events across the globe.
It is hoped that students will leave this class with a broad expanse of knowledge regarding how the monarchs fit into the fabric of history.
British Monarchs Through History will cover:
- Early Kings/Vikings
- William the Conqueror and the Normans
- Yorkists and Lancastrians
- Windsor and Modern-Day
