Sir Peter Lely - Prince Rupert of the Rhine

Many people have heard of Prince Rupert (1619-1682) as the dashing Royalist and cavalry commander during the English Civil War. But what happened to him afterwards? This day school will explore his subsequent career as a Royalist privateer who journeyed to west Africa and the Caribbean, as a founder member of the Royal Society after 1660, as a Lord High Admiral during the Third Dutch War, and much else.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
