‘Puritan Princesses: Oliver Cromwell’s Daughters’: a talk by Miranda Malins
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Admission: ££6 Adults, £4.50 Students/Museum Members
Location: Via Zoom
Behind the politics, war and religion that we associate with Oliver Cromwell was a man who was devoted to his family. His sons took after their father to one degree or another, but how much do we know about Cromwell's four daughters? The remarkable stories of these four women is revealed by historian and noverlist Miranda Malins, who has brought the eldest and youngest back to life in her first two novels.
Dr Miranda Malins is a writer and historian specialising in the history of Oliver Cromwell, his family and the politics of the Interregnum period following the Civil Wars. She studied at Cambridge University, leaving with a PhD, and continues to speak at conferences and publish journal articles and book reviews. Her novels 'the Puritan Princess' and 'the Rebel Daughter' have proved to be hughly succesful.
This talk will be recorded and put on a private channel after the 'live talk' for ticket holders to view at their leisure if they miss the live talk or wish to view them again.
