This lecture by history professor David Nash is part of the Monarchy and Republicanism series running this year at the Bishopsgate Institute in London.
It looks at how the republican movement of the 1800s polemicised against the monarchy and aristocracy, but gave up on the idea of revolution.
Other events in the season include debates on the nature of the monarchy’s power and whether republican ideals are still relevant today.
