BAD KING JOHN?: PENNY LECTURE
Wednesday 20 September
5.30pm-6.30pm  at Morley College, 61 Westminster Bridge
Road; 1p
King John is familiar to everyone as the villain from the
tales of Robin Hood - greedy, cowardly, despicable and
cruel. But who was the man behind the legend? Was he truly a
monster, or a capable ruler cursed by ill luck? In this talk
Marc Morris examines John's career and character, and
assesses the king's actions against the standards of his own
age.
