History of King Charles II of England

by Jacob Abbott

Despite some political turmoil and upheaval linked to ongoing conflict in the clash between Protestantism and Catholicism, the rule of Charles II, who reigned from 1660-1685, was largely a happy time for the kingdom of England, Scotland and Ireland. This exhaustive account of the life and contributions of Charles II provides a probing look at the king, who was a much more complex figure than his moniker The Merry Monarch may suggest.
