Hello everyone and welcome to the History of Scotland, Episode 35.
Today's episode we are shifting the lens from the public to the private and then, dramatically, back to the public but in a different way. First, we will zoom in on the family life of David I.
Who stood beside this powerful man? What was the royal household like? Were his children chips off the old block?
Understanding the personal life of David I adds layers of nuance to the portrait of this great king and sheds light on how personal matters influenced state affairs.
But hold onto your hats because following that, we’re switching gears to discuss something monumental—yes, it’s the Davidian Revolution.
Get ready for a deep dive into this transformative period, because understanding the Davidian Revolution is tantamount to understanding the very framework of modern Scotland.
This wasn’t just a regime change or a few tweaks here and there. This was a foundational shift that transformed the culture, law, and governance of Scotland in ways that have stood the test of time.
We'll discuss its roots, its effects, and its legacy—believe me, you don't want to miss this!
