    I like the ancient times, closely followed by the modern one. The middle ages count to the least appreciate periods.

    Looks like the early middle age. This era was the reason of your user name, was not it?

    The era extends from the early to the late middle ages, and of course!

    What time period do you find the most interesting?
    The future.

    The Tudors and Stuarts were a pretty interesting time. Both were terribly unstable dynasties made worse because of the religious conflicts, the rise of naval warfare, and the various political settlements. This was the beginning of the era we still exist in today, especially in terms of our geopolitics and civil institutions.

    Late medieval is a bit boring as not a lot happened in the 1300s and 1400s. Generally people were OK because the plague killed everyone off, so wages rose and everyone was happy, also we were constantly at war with France so there wasn't much going on at home. Even the Wars of the Roses I find a bit boring tbh. There were a couple of peasants' revolts but basically meh. However I find the 1100s and 1200s a bit more interesting for some reason, there were some pretty gnarly civil wars and power struggles and it seems a bit more raw. Going back further the Saxons and the unification of England were pretty awesome.

    Equally not a whole lot happened under the Hanoverians except Napoleon, and really that's a story about the rest of Europe. We had the balance of power shifting towards Parliament but the Hanoverians were pretty chill about the whole thing so not that interesting. Then Victorian and later had a fair bit of stuff going on but is too recent to really feel like proper history.

    I voted 'Hanoverians' as I love reading about everyday British life during that period and how the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars impacted Britain. I find a lot of the literary figures of that period, like Jane Austen and Fanny Burney, interesting to read about as well.

    For British history i'd say Victorian. For British colonial history i'd say the House of Hanover. For world history, Egypt-Greece-Rome.

    For British I'd go with the Victorian era, the industrial revolution, peak of an empire etc. For France, the French Revolution kicked off the biggest change in Europe which led to the Napoleonic era, era that truly changed Europe into the Europe that we know today

    The Edwardian era is rather fascinating I find and I would call that my favourite period in history.
