Queen Elizabeth II was England's longest serving monarch, and the second-longest reigning monarch in history. She served with 15 Prime Ministers, beginning with Winston Churchill.

Today we’ll put Elizabeth’s long and eventful reign in historical context. Our guests will be USU Associate Professor of History Susan Cogan and USU Distinguished Professor of History Tammy Proctor.
