Description

History Taster Lecture

"Danearys Targaryen as Elizabeth I's Spiritual Daughter"

This event is part of our taster lecture series and will be delivered by Dr Estelle Paranque. Estelle is Lecturer in Early Modern History at New College of the Humanities.

We look forward to welcoming current Year 12 and Year 13 students who are interested in studying History at degree level. If you are a school teacher and would like to bring a bigger group, then please email us on info@nchlondon.ac.uk for group bookings.

Please arrive from 17.30. The event itself will start at 18.00 and finish at around 19.00.

In recent years, the books and the TV show 'Game of Thrones' have subjugated many people. Set in a fantasy world that resembles a Medieval one, the fight for the Iron Throne has been centre plot. Daenerys Targaryen is one with the strongest claim to the throne, yet still she has to defend her legitimacy and claim.

This fictional queen appears to have many similarities with a historical one: Queen Elizabeth I of England, the last of the Tudor dynasty.
