War Of The Roses – Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
Smithsonian Associates – Interview Series
Welcome to The Not Old Better Show. I’m your host Paul Vogelzang, and this is show number 433.
As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art of Living series, we’re speaking today to Carol Ann Lloyd Stanger. Carol Ann Lloyd Stanger is a returning guest, a Not Old Better Show audience favorite, and today’s show is going to be all about royal family drama.
Carol Ann Lloyd Stanger will answer the question: Can a family conflict change the history of England and Europe? When it’s the Plantagenet family, the answer is yes. Henry VI’s weakness as a medieval king led to a challenge for power, resulting in a series of battles and power grabs known as the Wars of the Roses. Tudor scholar Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger traces this tumultuous history from its earliest origins through its years of conflicts to its final result: the establishment of the most powerful family of the 16th century, the Tudors.
Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show, Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger.
