Disinherited at the age of 16 by her father George Clifford, third earl of Cumberland, Lady Anne Clifford embarked on a series of legal battles and spent the next 40 years trying to regain the hereditary Clifford estates. Despite two husbands eager to settle her claims in return for monetary gain, Lady Anne Clifford did not give in, even under extreme duress and the personal intervention of James I. This course will examine the character and life of this redoubtable and determined woman. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
