Elizabeth II was our longest-reigning monarch. She celebrated her Platinum Jubilee in 2022, an unprecedented feat in the long history of the crown. Her death later that year seemed to mark the end of an era as few people in Britain could remember a time when she had not been reigning over them. The late queen might have broken all sorts of records, but how did she compare with some of her female predecessors?

In this illustrated talk, based on her book, Crown & Sceptre: A New History of the British Monarchy, historian and Broadcaster Tracy Borman will chart the fascinating 500-year history of the queens of England from Elizabeth of York to Elizabeth II.

Q&A and book signing at the end of the talk.
