Tracy Borman

Saturday 9th October 11:00 - 11:45 | Digital

The Fallen Angel is the highly anticipated final instalment of best selling author, historian and broadcaster Tracy Borman‘s King’s Witch trilogy. It follows the continuing fortunes of Frances Georges, a noblewoman living at King James I’s court under suspicion of witchcraft and involvement in the Gunpowder Plot. But now, in these later years of the reign, she and her family face a new threat in the form of the king’s great favourite, George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham. Villiers is a young man with the face of an angel and the cunning heart of a devil. In this illustrated talk, Tracy will tell the real history — and places — that inspired her latest novel, including the Tower of London and Hampton Court, where she works as Chief Curator. In so doing, she will take us into the dark, dangerous and often depraved world of the Stuart court and reveal the ruthless and charismatic man who brought England — and its king — to the brink of destruction.
