The Early Hanoverians by Edward Ellis Morris (1843 - 1902).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/early-hanoverians-by-edward-ellis-morris/
In this short book Edward Ellis Morris writes a vivid account of the reigns of the first two Georges. Scarcely had the fifty-four-year-old king assumed the throne when James Stuart roused the Highlanders in the "Fifteen." Five years later the collapse of the South Sea Company convulsed Britain and her first prime minister, Robert Walpole, emerged to stabilize the country's finances. George II succeeded his father in 1727 and Morris writes that "the new King was in person short, and like many short men, proud and touchy." Fortunately, he was guided by the wise Queen Caroline. On the Continent, the Turks besieged Vienna, Britain got embroiled first in the War of Jenkins' Ear and then in the War of the Austrian Succession, while Bonnie Prince Charlie took advantage of these distractions to mount the nearly successful Jacobite invasion of the "Forty-five." Meanwhile, John Wesley's Methodism revived religious enthusiasm, Boswell immortalized Samuel Johnson and his friends, and Tom Jones embarked on an epic road trip in which Henry Fielding brought English society to life, warts and all. (Pamela Nagami, M.D.)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Section 1 is PL OK. It's interesting that my time at Librivox has given me enough background to have a fairish grasp of the European states and monarchs at the time of the Treaty of Utrecht!

Best,

Barbara

Thanks, Barbara!

It's true. Since I joined Librivox all these friendly interconnected threads from the past have come to populate my consciousness.

My best,

PL OK. One of my other projects - "A Desirable Alien at Home in Germany" - contained salacious stories about the House of Hanover and it's all coming back to me. The author was gossipy and delighted in the macabre (more than I delighted in having to read!)

Best,

Barbara

And I wouldn’t put it past those Hanoverians.
