The Historical Association is honoured to announce that His Majesty King Charles III has agreed to be our patron.

   Rebecca Sullivan, CEO of the Historical Association, said, ‘We very much value his Majesty the King’s commitment to, and support of, history and history education. Our members and supporters will be pleased to know that history as a subject, study and lifelong history continues to have the recognition and value that His Majesty’s patronage provides.’

  This patronage continues the Historical Association’s long relationship with the Royal Family starting with Sir Henry Marten who was tutor to the Queen on constitutional history in the 1930s. Marten was a founder member of the Historical Association and later our president.
