On 8 June 2021, the Georgian Papers Programme (GPP) hosted a roundtable discussion about transnational interactions between the British monarchy and leader and peoples from around the globe.

This event built on David Armitage’s time as the 2019 Sons of the American Revolution Visiting Professor at King’s College London. During his time with the GPP, Professor Armitage studied George III and the Law of Nations and the discussion explored some of the insights from this project to understand more about connections between the British monarchy and the world outside of Europe.

Three panelists shared short papers about their research into different parts of the world during, or just after, the reign of the Georgian monarchs. Charles Prior (University of Hull) spoke about ongoing research into the relationship between the British crown and Native American polities. Priya Atwal (University of Oxford) discussed how royal blood framed Queen Victoria’s relations with Indian rulers and European princes in the mid-nineteenth century. And Henrietta Harrison (University of Oxford) discussed work on British interactions with the Qing dynasty in China, particularly the role of translators, officials, and the Macartney mission.
