Lecture: Making Majesty – The Marquess of Buckingham’s Presence Chamber at Dublin Castle @ Irish Georgian Society | County Dublin | Ireland

By Dr Myles Campbell, Collections, Research & Interpretation, Dublin Castle

In 1788, a fanfare of positive publicity greeted the creation of the new Presence Chamber (Throne Room) at Dublin Castle. But all was not as it seemed. This lecture, by the co-curator of Making Majesty, is organised by the Irish Georgian Society. It explores the hidden story of the Castle’s Throne Room and its majestic maker, against the turbulent backdrop of the social, political and cultural climate of Ireland in the 1780s.
