200 Years of British Monarchy Short Course

PastThursday, April 11, 2019 - 06:30 PM - 08:00 PM

In 1776, Americans declared our independence and broke away from the British monarchy. Yet today, we seem to be more fascinated with the “Royals” than ever before. In this short course, University of Louisville History Professor John McLeod will introduce the story of the British royal family through the 200 years since Queen Victoria was born in 1819. The six-week class explores the lives of queens, kings, princesses, and princes against a backdrop of profound changes in Britain and the world. John McLeod was born in Toronto, Canada. He has a special interest in the British monarchy: His ancestors included Americans who during the Revolutionary War supported King George III and as a result they had to move to Canada when the war was over. He has a PhD in History from the University of Toronto, where he wrote his dissertation on the British Empire in India. He joined the faculty of the University of Louisville in 1995. He has published five books and numerous articles, and teaches classes on the history of Britain, the British Empire, and India. The course is free and open to the public, but registration is requested. Call (502) 574-1623 to reserve your spot.
