David Starkey looks at James I and Charles I, and how the power and reputation of the monarchy which was at a high when Elizabeth died decreased and was challenged under the Stuarts.
We look at the reign of King George I, George II and George III, and how the clash between Prime Minister William Pitt and George III led to the American War of Independence.
A look at the events of 1688 and the aftermath, when the unpopular Roman Catholic King James II was overthrown and replaced with the protestant Stuart Mary and her husband William of Orange.
