Anne of Bohemia

March 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Anne of Bohemia, the eldest daughter of Charles IV, married King Richard II of England in 1382 at the age of 16 .

The speaker will be Dr Shubhankar Reddy, who will be giving the talk from his home in India, such is the wonder of Zoom. He is a doctor of medicine who has an interest in history, and will tell us about this remarkable lady who until her early death joined together the English and Bohemian royal houses. Dr Reddy will also tell us how he has become interested in Anne and in Bohemia.

Although initially unpopular in England (she brought no dowry with her) Anne won people over, not least by interceding with her husband on several occasions for mercy for people in his disfavour. Unlike many arranged marriages of the period it appears that they came to love each other.

The BCSA’s AGM will follow Dr Reddy’s talk, still on Zoom. The agenda will include the usual items of the Chairman’s annual report, the Treasurer’s report and accounts for 2021, and the election of the honorary officers. All members are welcome to attend.
