Women’s History Month – Women of Influence in 13th Century England
March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us, online, as we welcome back Sharon Bennett Connolly with a couple of her talks as part of Women’s History Month.
Women of Influence in 13th Century England
Sharon looks at how events in the lives of Maud de Braose, Nicholaa de la Haye and Ela of Salisbury helped to shape the century. Maud’s tragic death influenced clauses in the 1215 Magna Carta. Nicholaa de la Haye’s stoic defence of Lincoln Castle led to the defeat of French invaders and Ela of Salisbury was both a great countess, sheriff and abbess.
