The ‘Heirs to the throne’ podcast series: a royal treat for your ears!


We have all been there: you are keen to find out more about the fascinating experiences of a nineteenth-century royal heir, about what shaped his or her life and how he or she made a difference to their world, but the time is not right for reading.

Maybe you are out jogging, pottering round the kitchen to prepare a delicious meal or soaking in a nice hot bath. How often have we sighed: “Why can’t someone tell me a great story? Where is the kindly soul who would make me feel delighted and informed?”

Finally, our prayers have been answered. The Heirs-to-the-Throne Team are proud to announce the start of our podcast series: a selection of the finest “Heir-of-the Month” essays will now be made available as mini-lectures.

A right royal treat for your ears is now only a mouse-click away!

This week: Listen to the story of liberal Aya Juana de Vega, Condessa de Espoz y Mina, her attempts to make Isabel II into a good constitutional queen and the opposition she faced to her endeavour, written and read by Richard Meyer Forsting (wav-file, 20:31 min).
