Monthly meeting

The Fair Maid of Kent

James Dickinson, an amateur historian from Sussex, will talk about 
Joan – the Fair Maid of Kent, said to have been the most beautiful woman in England. She was born in 1328 and was the mother of King Richard II of England, whom she bore to her third husband Edward the Black Prince, son and heir of King Edward III
 
The talk will include details of her family and how it overlapped in a significant way with another branch of the English Royal Family. The talk will concentrate on domestic matters rather than military or political events.

If you think friends might be interested in this talk, they are welcome to attend. They will be asked to sign in so that we have a record of attendance.
