The economic shock that ruined so many investors, from royal mistresses to royal footmen, was the bursting of the South Sea Bubble in 1720.

The economic shock that ruined so many investors, from royal mistresses to royal footmen, was the bursting of the South Sea Bubble, in 1720. Even the Chancellor of the Exchequer was, briefly, consigned to the Tower of London for his part in the shenanigans. Join City of London guide, Tim Kidd to find out more.
