Yorkist Foreign Policy


Another new series of talks from the popular speaker, Matt Smith.


Richard III: From Birth to Bosworth

Join us, online, as we welcome back Matt Smith, Chairman of Richard III Society, with another new series of talks.

Yorkist Foreign Policy – 28th March

Edward IV favoured Burgundy, and Richard III had too little time to make an impact. That’s one view of Yorkist Foreign Policy, but by delving deeper into the complex relationships of Western Europe, the shifting chess board and secret power plays, Matt Lewis will consider whether Yorkist foreign policy had more of an impact that has been thought. Can we reassess the ending of the Hundred Years’ War?

Time: 7pm

Venue: Online
