Spares who became Heirs

Tea Time History Chat Live | 10th April 2024

In this episode I’m covering the spares whose lines leapfrogged into the direct line due to the unexpected death of their elder sibling. I’ll be discussing Empress Matilda and King Stephen, Richard the Lionheart, Henry VIII, Charles I, George V, who became heirs on the deaths of William Aethling, Henry the Young King, Arthur Tudor Prince of Wales, Henry Frederick Prince of Wales, and Prince Albert Victor, respectively.
