Welcome to the one year anniversary special of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.For this very special episode, celebrating the past year, I am joined by the wonderful medieval historian Gemma Hollman to discuss a relationship with repercussions through the ages. Join us as we delve into the  Elizabeth Woodville and Edward IV love story.In the midst of a warring kingdom, the young new King Edward IV secretly marries Elizabeth Woodville - a widow with lineage which ensures many initially question whether she is the right match for the King of England. The legend behind their love for each other, however, emerges as the couple encounter a tumultuous reign. In death, the legitimacy of their relationship is famously undermined by Richard III in which Elizabeth is accused of witchcraft.Their relationship and the drama of the decades in which their love story blossomed remain of vast interest today as evidenced by the popularity of The White Queen by Philippa Gregory and the following BBC adaptation of the same name.With this love story, I would like to say a big thank you for all of your support over the past year - you have made this podcast happen and I will be forever grateful.

Welcome back to the Christmas special of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.With Covid and the closure of so many theatres this year, it only seemed apt to take the Past Loves Christmas special to the stage. So for this very special episode, I am joined by Irina Klyagin - a Russian ballet scholar who looks after Harvard University’s extensive theatre collection at the Houghton Library - to discuss the love story between Rudolf Nureyev and Erik Bruhn.Erik was the Danish ice to Rudolf's Russian fire and the two were both titans within the ballet world, defining an era. Their art was, therefore, at the heart of their relationship and was so from the very beginning. When Rudolf defected to the West from the Soviet Union, it was his aim to meet and train with Erik. He knew that was where he was meant to be. They learnt from each other, honing their talent to become two of the most famous male ballet dancers in history.Their love story is one of passion which I very much hope you enjoy. May your festive season be full of light and love.

Welcome back to the season finale of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.This week I am joined by an absolutely incredible guest the 11th Duchess of Rutland to discuss the relationship between the 5th Duke and Duchess, John Henry and Elizabeth.Together they created the most magical fairy-tale castle - Belvoir Castle. When Elizabeth arrived at Belvoir as a young bride, she was not inspired by the building currently looking out across the Vale of Belvoir. Instead, this remarkable Regency power couple wanted to make a statement all of their own and with this, the romantic castle that we now see today was born. They entertained in the most fabulous way and left an indelible mark on society and the British landscape.  Today, you may recognise Belvoir from Netflix's The Crown, The Young Victoria (2009) or Victoria & Abdul (2017). But, whilst it may be a firm favourite of Hollywood, John Henry and Elizabeth are truly the heart of the breathtaking Belvoir Castle.Where To Find UsBook tickets for Belvoir Castle: https://www.belvoircastle.com/castle-book-tickets/Take the virtual tour: https://www.belvoircastle.com/product/virtual-tour-product/Follow Belvoir Castle on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/belvoircastle/Follow Past Loves on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pastlovespodcast/ Shop Her Grace's book Belvoir Castle: A Thousand Years of Family Art and Architecture: https://www.belvoircastle.com/product/belvoir-castle-a-thousand-years-of-family-art-and-architecture/Learn more about Elizabeth's parents' love story in the Castle Howard episode: https://www.buzzsprout.com/997147/4052561Listen To Victoria & Albert episode with Helen Rappaport: https://www.buzzsprout.com/997147/3782192Watch Phil Spencer's Stately Homes: https://www.channel4.com/programmes/phil-spencers-stately-homesJoin the Past Loves newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/d293dd27393a/past-loves-newsletterIf Past Loves has become your current love, you can email me at pastlovespodcast@gmail.com
Welcome back to the next episode of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.This week I am joined by author, editor and proofreader, specialising in Russia and the history of women, Virginia Rounding to discuss the relationship between the last Tsar and Tsarina of Russia, Tsar Nicholas II and Empress Alexandra.As the biggest fan of Russian history theirs is a story close to my heart, filled with heart-breaking moments of utter anguish alongside many years of the deepest sense of love for one another. Nicholas became tsar when his father died unexpectedly, taking on the role of the autocratic leader of a vast nation in a trying time. His solace? The fact that he had the woman whom he adored Alexandra, or Alix as she was known, to rule by his side. Together, not only did they shape the future of Russia but, they also raised a family of five children in extraordinary circumstances. After years of war, revolution and Rasputin, their story famously came to a bitter end in 1918. Nevertheless, throughout it all, Alix and Nicky's love story is one of true devotion.

Welcome back to the next episode of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.This week I am joined by author Angela Steidele who has written several books about LGBTQ+ lives in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries, including a biography of Anne Lister. We will, therefore, be delving into the relationship between Anne Lister and Ann Walker.Anne Lister is often described as the 'first modern lesbian' and the diaries that she left provide a wealth of detail about her many passionate relationships with women. After all, in 1821, she wrote in her diaries: ‘I love, & only love, the fairer sex’.  When she returned from the continent to Shibden Hall in 1832, she aimed to make the estate a success and find a wife. Her relationship history of labyrinthine complexity thus culminated in a marriage to Ann Walker. Their story is, of course, now at the centre of the smash-hit BBC TV drama series Gentleman Jack. But what is the story behind the dramatisation? It's safe to say it is just as compelling...Where To Find UsShop Angela's book Gentleman Jack: A biography of Anne Lister, Regency Landowner, Seducer and Secret Diarist: https://www.waterstones.com/book/gentleman-jack/katy-derbyshire/angela-steidele/9781788160995Discover more about Angela: https://serpentstail.com/angela-steidele.htmlListen to HRH Princess Mary & The 6th Earl of Harewood episode: https://www.buzzsprout.com/997147/3687205Join the Past Loves newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/d293dd27393a/past-loves-newsletterFollow Past Loves on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pastlovespodcast/ If Past Loves has become your current love, you can email me at pastlovespodcast@gmail.com 
Welcome back to the next episode of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time - and this time it's the first ever Tudor love story!That's right, this week I am joined by Melita Thomas, author and co-founder/editor of Tudor Times, to discuss the love story between Lady Katherine Grey and Edward Seymour. After the death of her sister Lady Jane Grey, Katherine became the next Grey in line to the throne. So when her secret marriage to Edward Seymour was disclosed, it called down Queen Elizabeth's wrath.The couple had enjoyed a fragrant summer of banquets and garden walks at Eltham in 1559, before marrying the following year with Edward's sister Jane and a priest as witnesses. When Katherine realised that she was pregnant, it was time to tell the Queen. Predictably, the admission was to have disastrous consequences for the couple. This is, therefore, a story quite unlike any other, weaving together Tudor court politics, familial ties and romantic pursuits. With this, I think that it is safe to say that Katherine and Edward's relationship may just be the most romantic and heart-breaking Tudor tale there is. The story of their love for each other deserves to be told.With a special thanks to Llinos @thiscatladylife, to whom this episode is dedicated, for suggesting their story.Where To Find UsDiscover the joys of Tudor Times here: https://tudortimes.co.uk/Shop Tudor Times Insights - Lady Katherine Grey, Tudor Prisoner: https://shop.tudortimes.co.uk/collections/books/products/lady-katherine-grey-tudor-prisonerFollow Tudor Times on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheTudorTimesDiscover Melita's other book The House of Grey: Friends & Foes of Kings: https://www.waterstones.com/book/the-house-of-grey/melita-thomas/9781445684970Join the Past Loves newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/d293dd27393a/past-loves-newsletterFollow Past Loves on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pastlovespodcast/ If Past Loves has become your current love, you can email me at pastlovespodcast@gmail.com
Welcome back to the next episode of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.This week, we are discovering the love story behind one of my absolute favourite places - The Bowes Museum. The Bowes Museum is a hidden treasure in the heart of Teesdale, based in the historic town of Bernard Castle. A truly magnificent museum, it may outwardly appear to be a stately home but, in fact, the museum was specifically built  by John and Joséphine Bowes in the 19th Century to house remarkable and significant collections of fine and decorative arts. I am joined by Judith Phillips, the honorary archivist at the Bowes Museum, to discuss how their love story bought this remarkable place to fruition.From the Teesdale countryside to the upper echelons of fashionable society in Paris, John met Joséphine Benoîte Coffin-Chevallier at the Théâtre de Variétés where Joséphine was an actress. The couple fell in love and married in contrast to convention at the time. Together, they decided to create a public museum. In a very short time they amassed a vast collection of over 15,000 objects representing all types of European fine and decorative arts from the 15th to the 19th Century, including the now famous silver swan automaton. They had a shared vision which was rooted in their deep affection for one another.Where To Find UsBook tickets: https://www.thebowesmuseum.org.uk/Buy-TicketsShop John And Joséphine Bowes by Caroline Chapman: http://thebowesmuseumshop.org.uk/john-and-josephine-bowes-the-creation-of-the-bowes-museum.irDiscover latest Covid-19 updates: https://www.thebowesmuseum.org.uk/Follow Bowes Museum on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thebowesmuseum/Follow Bowes Museum on Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheBowesMuseumJoin the Past Loves newsletter: https://mailchi.mp/d293dd27393a/past-loves-newsletterFollow Past Loves on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pastlovespodcast/ If Past Loves has become your current love, you can email me at pastlovespodcast@gmail.com
Welcome back to the next episode of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.This week we are exploring a period of history that is so very often spoken about but, in a completely unique way with an unlikely romance between Elinor Powell and Frederick Albert. I am joined by author and freelance journalist, Alexis Clark as we travel into the depths of the Arizona desert to discover the love story between this African american nurse and German POW. Put simply, Elinor and Frederick were enemies in love.In the most ruthless of times, they fell deeply in love with each other against all of the odds. I have to say I think Frederick has perhaps one of the best first lines that I have ever heard so do listen out for that moment. And their story together followed from there, from a burgeoning romance in Camp Florence to Frederick's German home and back to the USA again. It is a story of true love set against an under-reported part of World War II and a shocking, hidden history of race on the home front. But Elinor and Frederick's love would conquer all.Where To Find UsShop Alexis' book Enemies in Love: A German POW, A Black Nurse And an Unlikely Romance: https://www.waterstones.com/book/enemies-in-love/alexis-clark/9781620971864Follow Alexis on Twitter: https://twitter.com/msabclarkFollow Past Loves on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pastlovespodcast/If you're searching for fellow history lovers to discover on Instagram, check out #historygirls and #womenshistorycircleListen to Mildred & Richard Lovings story: https://www.buzzsprout.com/997147/4410428If Past Loves has become your current love, you can email me at pastlovespodcast@gmail.com
Welcome back to Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.This week I am joined by Julia Abel Smith who has enjoyed a long career with The Landmark Trust and more recently with Art UK. She has also written for Country Life and House & Garden magazines. Whilst researching the history of one of the Trust’s follies, she discovered Lady Augusta and was captivated. Lady Augusta had secretly married Prince Augustus, the son of George III. She was Augusta. He was Augustus. They shared a birthday. It seemed like destiny but their marriage would be marred by scandal.Julia weaves together the correspondence of the couple during the first intoxicating months of their relationship in Italy, detailing their secret marriage, before revealing their subsequent fight to be together against the backdrop of Augustus' father's Royal Marriages Act of 1772. It is a love story set in the reigns of Kings George III and IV against the background of the American and French Revolutions with plenty of drama of its own. Over the years, their relationship has been lost to history, until now...Where To Find UsShop Julia's book Forbidden Wife: The Life And Trials of Lady Augusta Murray: https://www.thehistorypress.co.uk/publication/forbidden-wife/9780750993333/Follow Past Loves on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pastlovespodcast/If Past Loves has become your current love, you can email me at pastlovespodcast@gmail.com
Welcome to the second season of Past Loves - the weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.This week I am joined by acclaimed historian of India and a professor of South Asian History at Emory University, Ruby Lal, to discuss the relationship between Nur Jahan and Jahangir - the early 17th century co-sovereigns of the Mughal empire.At a time when other wives were secluded behind walls, Nur Jahan boldly redefined the role of the royal wife. She was the twentieth and most cherished wife of the Emperor Jahangir and together, they ruled the vast Mughal Empire side by side. In fact, she was the only woman ruler among the great Mughals of India. Their love story is peppered with myths, legends and tales about their affection for one another which are enriched by Ruby's extensive research into the significance of their lives and relationship. Thus their leadership, sovereignty and love story are all truly astonishing.Where To Find UsShop Ruby's book Empress: The Astonishing Reign of Nur Jahan: https://www.hive.co.uk/Product/Ruby-Lal/Empress--The-Astonishing-Reign-of-Nur-Jahan/24044914More about Ruby: https://rubylal.com/Enter my History Press giveaway to win a copy of Widows (until 15/09/2020): https://www.instagram.com/p/CEmgNcaHakF/Follow Past Loves on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/pastlovespodcast/If Past Loves has become your current love, you can email me at pastlovespodcast@gmail.com

Welcome once again to the next episode of Past Loves - the new weekly history podcast that explores affection, infatuation and attachment across time.This week I am joined by Professor of History at Virginia Tech Peter Wallenstein to discuss the relationship between Mildred and Richard Loving - a normal couple from the depths of Virginia who quite literally redefined the constitution of the United States of America.Against the backdrop of anti-miscegenation laws that had criminalized interracial marriage for so very long, Mildred and Richard Loving were exiled from the state for formalising their love for each other and getting married. They were banished from their home, a home where they wanted to raise their family. With the help of Bernie Cohen and Phil Hirschkop, the couple took their case to the US Supreme Court to fight for the freedom to love. Richard's famous line 'Tell the court I love my wife' still echos through the ages and their love story has an undeniable lasting legacy - offering freedom to so very many.Where To Find Us Shop Peter's book Race, Sex and the Freedom to Marry: Loving v.

Toklas and their undeniable legacy. Together, they laid the foundation for 20th-century art and literature - cultivating and patronising the likes of Picasso, Matisse and Hemingway.In the heart of Paris, the city of love, these two Americans created an environment that nurtured now icons within the arts, as well as creating works that also gained widespread acclaim. Most notably was Stein's book The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas which documents their lives running the most famous Parisian salon in the voice of her beloved.

As a divorce case ensues, Charles and Katie's willingness for mutual self-destruction, in order to build a happier life together, is desperately clear. It is a testament to the power of love.
