    Post What is your favourite period in British history ?

    I have just completed a Brief History of England for Eupedia.

    I suppose that many of you are at least partially familar with the history of England or the UK. What is your favourite period ?

    I like all periods, but the 18th and 19th century are particularily exciting. My favourite king, however, would be Henry VIII, for having the guts to dismiss the Pope as a mere foreign ecclesiastic, nationalise all the church's property (a good way to become ultra-rich quicker than Bill gates ) and lay the foundation to a strong and unified England.
