Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Remarkably and immensely readable...A just yet compassionate study of two complex, muddled, fissured human beings caught in the most difficult of crafts--kingship...It should not be missed by anyone interested in the Stuarts or in the personalities of Charles I and Charles II: indeed, any reader will be greatly stimulated by it."--J.H. Plumb, New York Review of Books. Two kings, father and son...and yet, their personalities could hardly have differed more. Through sources as varied as masks, statues, poems, medals, and contemporary written records, a picture of these Stuart monarchs, their characters and their politics, emerges.

Synopsis:

Two kings, father and son, with uniquely different personalities. Through sources as varied as masques, statues, poems, and medals, a picture of these Stuart monarchs, their characters and their politics emerges. “ Remarkably and immensely readable...A just yet compassionate study of two complex, muddled, fissured human beings caught in the most difficult of crafts— kingship...It should not be missed by anyone.” — J. H. Plumb, "New York Review of Books."

Synopsis:

This is an examination of the two most famous Stuart kings, whose personalities could not have been more different. The biography is based upon first-hand accounts by people who knew them and looks at how they are represented in the works of art that they commissioned.
