Helen Castor discussed Elizabeth Stuart on Woman’s Hour BBC Radio 4 this morning.
‘It’s expected that Parliament will pass legislation later this year which would allow a girl to succeed to the throne over a younger brother. We’ve been looking back in history to tell the stories of the Lost Queens – women who would have become monarch if, simply, the oldest child had taken the throne. Elizabeth Stuart was the elder sister of Charles I. How different might the course of history have been if she had become a Queen of England? Our reporter, Louise Adamson, has been talking to the historian Helen Castor about the woman who came to be known as the Winter Queen of Bohemia.’
You can listen at the Woman’s Hour website. The interview is 14 minutes in.
