The Gunpowder Plot & The Stuarts with Leanda de Lisle

Home » podcasts » Episode 112

Remember, remember,
The Fifth of November,
Gunpowder treason and plot;
For I see no reason
Why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.

The plan was that on the 5th November 1605, James I would attend the opening of Parliament, and so allow the Gunpowder plotters to blow him and his government, and many of his family, sky hight. What would have happened next? And what of the Stuarts themselves? An extraordinary dynasty; from Mary Queen of Scots, James I, Charles I, Charles II and James II; and the editor runs through them with acclaimed historian Leanda de Lisle, author of Henrietta Maria.
