TONIGHT (online and in-person): Professor Simon Thurley CBE, ‘The Spanish Culture of Charles I’s Court’, Museum of London, 6-7 PM

In 1623, Charles I (as heir to the throne) made a secret and hazardous trip to Madrid to win the hand of a Spanish princess. For eight months he was the guest of the Spanish king, Philip IV, living in the Alcazar of Madrid. The opportunities to study art, architecture and court ceremonial made a profound impact on the 23-year-old Charles, and it influenced his own taste when two years later he inherited the thrones of England and Scotland.

This event will take place both online and in person, at the Museum of London, on September 15th from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.
