18:00  Presentation by Nichola Hayton MBE (open to the public)

   'Elizabeth Stuart’s Heirs'

Details on presentation:
Everything began with a project called 'The Wedding' to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the marriage between Elizabeth Stuart, only daughter of James I, and Palatine Elector Frederick V in 1613. The project had many different aspects - an exhibition of paintings loaned from London museums at Heidelberg Castle, the staging of a specially commissioned play performed by German and British student actors, a 3-day international conference, a weekend of historical reenactments and street parades ending with a huge firework display, and throughout the year many talks on the by now famous couple.
The project received the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, which guaranteed its success. At the time, the idea of inviting a member of the royal family to Heidelberg was proposed, and two years later it came to fruition when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Heidelberg and the whole town celebrated.
So what is it that made the union of Elizabeth Stuart and Frederick V so relevant to the royal family today? Because from it comes the direct dynastic line to the current royal family and Queen Elizabeth II. Nichola will present a part of the story of Elizabeth Stuart and her children which illustrates this and also gives some background to the exhibition currently running in the Kurpfälzisches Museum.
