Prophecy, Propaganda and Portraits: How to Rule a Nation?

Saturday 20 June 2020, 10.00AM to 4.00pm

The idea of a ‘spin doctor’ is nothing new. Many Tudor and Stuart monarchs were adept at using the media channels they possessed to enforce their control and create a positive image. This day course will explore the ways in which prophecy, propaganda and portraits were used by Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, James I and Charles I, and how the people fought back with their own propaganda in the English Civil Wars. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
