  1. The life and times of George II
    Course start date:  Fri 11 Oct 2024

    Location on this date:  Online

    Tutors:  William Sterling
    George II is perhaps best remembered as the last British monarch to lead his troops into battle and also as the



    instigator of the custom of standing for the Hallelujah Chorus in Handel’s Messiah. His reign marked the high point of



    Handel’s career which the King did much to promote but also saw other great achievements in British culture with the art of Hogarth and the works of Pope and Swift. In politics, Robert Walpole created the post of Prime Minister and Bonnie Prince Charlie’s rebellion was the last attempt by the Stuarts to regain power and made him into an instant legend. Towards the end of the reign men like Pitt, Wolfe and Clive laid the foundations of the British empire whilst the Agricultural Revolution was transforming British society.
