William and Mary

Life and Times of King William III and Queen Mary II

A survey of the Life & Times of Britain’s only Joint Monarchs. They came to power in what was called the Glorious Revolution and although they only reigned a short while they laid the foundations for Modern Britain. It was also the period of Wren and Purcell and the latter wrote much of his best music for the Queen.

I ran this workshop at Crayford Manor (Bexley College) January 2003 as part of a series on the Kings and Queens of England.
