History of the British Empire

Time for a little break.

Queen Victoria, the monarchy, and the British Empire are built on theft, bloodshed and murder. The link between Great Britain, Africa, slavery, India, Afghanistan and many other ugly truths manifesting themselves in some form today, tends not to be widely taught in the UK. The result is that many people, even citizens of England live in absolute ignorance about how their country became a power in the world. However, this most excellent sketch by CBBC children TV show: Horrible Histories, episode 11, exposes the story for all and sundry.
