Monthly Meeting Location
The Wittelsbach royal family of Bavaria and their castles and palaces
The history of Bavaria is intertwined with that of the glamorous Wittelsbach royal family, who produced such well-known royal celebrities as ‘Mad’ King Ludwig II of Bavaria. In this talk royal author and historian Susan Symons will explore their enthralling story through visiting some of their treasure-trove of castles and palaces in Bavaria.
About the speaker
The accidental discovery by Susan Symons of a portrait of Queen Victoria in her attic sparked her lifelong interest in European Royal History. By reading about the Queen’s colourful life story she realised that history need not be boring, and that royal history in particular is both fascinating and fun. She says it is like a historical, but better, version of Hello magazine.
Susan has an MA in Victorian Studies from London University, where her dissertation was on the public image of the young Queen Victoria. She makes regular visits to Germany and writes and lectures on German schlösser and German royal history as well as about Queen Victoria. Susan divides her time between the elegant and historic city of Bath, where she was born and brought up, and the beautiful coast of Cornwall, where her husband’s family have their roots.
NEW MEMBERS COFFEE
Current, potential and new members are equally welcome to come and share experiences or just enjoy a chat at the New Members’ Coffee Morning. It is held the first Monday of every month (except August & December) and is a more personal way for potential and new members to learn more about the club and to meet one another and longer-term club members.
Next meet: Monday, October 7, 2019, 10:30 – 12:00
