Do you know the difference between "Elizabethan" and "Victorian"? Have you noticed how many English or British kings were called Edward, or George, or Henry? In this lesson I’ll give a summary of hundreds of years of English and British history. We’ll talk about some of the labels used for the different periods, and some of the kings and queens – including a short period when we didn’t have a monarch at all! If you’ve heard names like Tudor, Edwardian, Restoration, Victorian, and Elizabethan, but not been quite sure exactly what they mean, this lesson is for you. These names are useful to know if you’re studying anything historical, including literature, architecture, works of art, and music. After the lesson, test your knowledge with the quiz!
