Winchester’s Queens

Alison Weir

Throughout history, Queens have played a role in some of the most dramatic events in our history.  Crusading queens, rebel queens, learned queens, seductresses, fighting queens, these determined women often broke through the restrictions of their times to exercise power and influence, for good and for bad.

Bestselling historian Alison Weir will speak about some of our fascinating Medieval and Tudor Queens, and how Winchester played a part in their lives and actions.
