Professor Margaret MacMillan: ‘David Lloyd George: The Peacemaker’ 12/12/2016

To mark the centenary of David Lloyd George’s appointment as Prime Minister, Bangor University (in conjunction with the Learned Society of Wales) is hosting a special lecture on his life and legacy by one of the UK’s most renowned historians, Professor Margaret MacMillan, on Monday, 12 December at 7pm in the Eric Sunderland Lecture Theatre of the Main Arts Building.  The lecture is entitled ‘David Lloyd George: The Peacemaker’ and all are welcome.  It will be introduced by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor John G. Hughes, a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales.

David Lloyd George was one of the twentieth century’s most famous radicals, and the first and only Welshman to hold the office of Prime Minister.  He was brought up in Llanystumdwy and later served as Liberal MP for Caernarfon, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and as Prime Minister from 1916 to 1922.

Professor MacMillan is Professor of International History and Warden of St Antony’s College at the University of Oxford.  She is a leading interpreter of the First World War, and a writer of great stature.  She was the first woman to win the Samuel Johnson prize for non-fiction, for her book Paris 1919: Six Months that Changed the World (2001).  Her most recent book is History’s People, published in February. Margaret is a great-granddaughter of David Lloyd George.
