The Hanovers and Windsors Re-Discover the Stuarts:
Treasures from the Royal Collection

Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, the Royal Collection has been
augmented with numerous relics of the later Stuarts.  These have included
paintings, engravings, manuscripts, printed books, silverware and jewels.
This presentation will highlight some of the more important and interesting
items in the Royal Collection and consider how they were acquired.

Noel’s research activities revolve chiefly around Jacobitism, a political
movement to restore the Stuarts and their heirs to the thrones of England
and Scotland. His personal website,  <http://www.jacobite.ca/> The Jacobite
Heritage, is widely recognised as among the most important online resources
for the topic. He has given talks on specific aspects of Jacobitism and the
Stuart family in Toronto, Ottawa, London (Ontario), and Modena (Italy).
