Welcome to RoyalHistoryGeeks.com, the home of a new blog that will launch in January 2016.
For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with the stories of the Kings and Queens that have shaped the United Kingdom. From the personal dramas that would seem far-fetched to a soap opera writer, to the dynamic political factions that competed for power, influence and dominance over the crowned heads of the Kingdom, the annuls of history have presented me with greater intellectual stimulation and enjoyment than any fiction writer could have hoped to.
Having spent many a late night debating on Royal forums, furiously correcting Wikipedia entries and trawling the internet for any trace of the subjects that fascinate me, I know that I am not alone.
It is my dream that this blog helps facilitate these conversations and becomes a centre for intelligent and well-written content on the Royal houses that have reigned over us and those that were intimately connected to them.
A blog, by its nature must be regularly updated and fast moving. This means that content won’t always be thoroughly researched, although sometimes a greater level of investigation will proceed posting.
Let me be clear on one thing. Blogging can never replace deeply researched scholarship; this blog will not even pretend to do so. Instead it will help people dip their toe in the water, give each of us a chance to contribute our thinking and frankly, help us enjoy sharing our super-cool but often misunderstood obsessions with those of a like mind.
If you would like to be kept up to date with the progress of this blog, or even fancy the chance of submitting a post, please sign up to the mailing list.
Thanks for considering joining me on this adventure. We have a Royal history that’s worth being geeky about.
