About The Course

The Plantagenet dynasty ruled for almost four hundred years, responsible for planting England firmly on the map of Christendom as one of the most powerful countries in Western Europe. Plantagenet Kings and Queens were merciless, bloody minded and even went to war against their family to gain power. Despite a history packed with war, murder and intrigue, the Plantagenets are often overlooked as an English dynasty, yet we still celebrate, take pride in and adhere to the architecture, literature and law they are responsible for. How did the Plantagenets influence the making of Britain? Who were the real people wearing the crown? And can we always believe the stories written about them?
