Jane Austen and the ‘King of Bling’ – Catherine Curzon

Monday, September 11, 2017
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

This lively talk delves into the sometimes shocking, always scandalous, private life of ‘the first gentleman of England’. It suggests why Austen boldly declared she ‘hated’ this monarch even after she was his honoured guest at London’s most prestigious address. The other side to this saucy Sovereign was a man who championed Jane Austen and her works which secured the Regent his very own dedication from the author he adored.
