Speaker: Josh Zucker
Current Schedule for Josh Zucker
Josh is the host of Grand Dukes of the West. He has been a history fan his whole life and fell in love with Late Medieval France when one of his teachers gifted him a biography of Louis XI. Since then his interest in the subject has turned into an obsession and he finally decided to share it with the world by starting Grand Dukes of the West.
The story of Valois Burgundy is one of the most exciting of the Late Middle Ages. During Burgundy’s height its Dukes were seen as the equals of Kings and Emperors and their court was at the center of Western Europe’s cultural and political development. And then it all fell apart.
