7. THE SONG OF SIMON DE MONTFORT

Generously sponsored by

Sophie Thérèse Ambler will offer a bold reassessment of one of British history’s most misunderstood figures – the extraordinary Simon de Montfort; heir to a great warrior, devoted husband and father, fearless crusader knight and charismatic leader. It is the story of a man whose passion for good governance was so fierce that he overthrew his king and seized the reins of power in medieval England.
