The Good Old Cause, the Twists and Turns of the English Republic and why it failed—Part 2. Road back to Monarchy


This second talk will continue the extraordinary story of the new English Republic and its challenges from where we left it in part one. It will also explore the complex character of Oliver Cromwell, and how his personality alone was instrumental in the eventual failure of the republic that brought about a return to monarchy.
