Description
During the 229-year period from 1485 to 1714, England transformed itself from a minor feudal state into what has been called "the first modern society" and emerged as the wealthiest and most powerful nation in the world. Survival is one of the defining motifs of this story, as the English survived repeated epidemics and famines, one failed invasion and two successful ones, two civil wars, a series of violent religious reformations and counter-reformations, and confrontations with two of the most powerful monarchs on earth, Louis XIV of France and Philip II of Spain. But they did much more than survive. They produced a great culture, giving the world the ideas of John Locke, the plays of Shakespeare, the wit of Swift, the poetry of Milton, the buildings of Christopher Wren, the science of Isaac Newton, and the verse of the King James Bible, to name a very few. And, despite the wrongs they visited upon so many, they also left behind something else: the political principles and ideals on which we would build our nation. As you watch England's changing social, economic, religious, and political structures unfold while the Tudors and then the Stuarts establish their monarchies, you will hear the real facts behind such interesting and enduring stories as: Henry VIII's wives and his fear that a woman would rule the reigns of Henry's three children: the popular Elizabeth I, "Bloody Mary," and Edward VI James I insisting monarchy be stronger than Parliament the execution of Charles I, who dressed in his best clothes to walk to his beheading James II, who believed Britain could not live without him William III, invited by the British to invade them Queen Anne's War and her immense popularity the great and tumultuous city of London continuing religious persecution and change. Along with the rich history of England's monarchs you will also learn how the English people were born, worked, played, worshipped, fell in love, and died.
