The tumultuous struggle for supremacy between King Henry II and his four sons was a drama that tore apart the most powerful family in Western Europe and shaped the future of two nations. Although the key events took place over 800 years ago, their significance still resonates today. Nick’s talk will challenge everything you assumed you knew about the medieval world.


Nick Barratt is an author, broadcaster and historian best known for the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? His most recent book, The Forgotten Spy, tells the story of his great uncle, Stalin’s first mole in Whitehall.
