Thursdays, 9:40–11:05, Sept. 20–Oct. 11
Four sessions
Instructor: Carol Ann Lloyd

“The King is dead!” But sometimes the Queen is alive and well, and eager to be involved in the reign of her child. What happens when the child becomes ruler over everyone… even Mum? The title “Queen Mother” has been in use since the late 16th century, but the role was significant for hundreds of years before that. Explore the lives of the women who rocked the cradle and helped rule the world.
