Noted author and historian Charles Coulombe joins us again (You may recall him from Interview 20) to move a little further back in time to the layout of the modern world. 150 years before the French Revolution the English killed their king and made a revolution that changed our world, seemingly irrevocably. Charles traces the history of the conflict of the Three Kingdoms (England, Ireland and Scotland) from Henry VIII to the open war between King and Parliament that resulted in the supremacy of the state and the end of Tradition. Join us for a fascinating journey through figures as fascinating as King James I, George Villiers, Charles I, Henriette Marie, and most fatefully, Oliver Cromwell.
NB: This was originally recorded in late October, but I have been too busy to get this up as soon as I would have liked. My apologies to Charles who graciously gave his time for this interview.
