He was never crowned... more...

But after he raised the Stuart standard at Glenfinnan... more...

  • Charles II (Penguin Monarchs)by Clare Jackson

    Penguin Books Ltd 2016; US$ 17.58

    Charles II has always been one of the most instantly recognisable British kings - both in his physical appearance, disseminated through endless portraits, prints and pub signs, and in his complicated mix of lasciviousness, cynicism and luxury. His father's execution and his own many years of exile made him a guarded, curious, unusually self-conscious... more...

  • Edward VII (Penguin Monarchs)by Richard Davenport-Hines

    Penguin Books Ltd 2016; US$ 17.58

    Like his mother Queen Victoria, Edward VII defined an era.

This book conveys Edward's distinct personality and significant influences. To the despair of his parents, he rebelled as a young man, conducting... more...

  • Richard II (Penguin Monarchs)by Laura Ashe

    Penguin Books Ltd 2016; US$ 20.78

    Richard II (1377-99) came to the throne as a child, following the long, domineering, martial reign of his grandfather Edward III.
