The Private Passions of Bonnie Prince Charlie

Charles Edward Stuart lives on as a romantic hero of legend yet, behind that image, history shows him to be a charismatic self-seeker who loved only himself and his cause. Hugh Douglas shows that Bonnie Prince Charlie was also a man capable of passionate love. This is a re-examination of the Scottish hero whose flawed character and lack of success in matters of the heart influenced his relations with the royal courts of Europe and played an important part in his role in the history of Scotland and England - perhaps contributing as much to the defeat of the Jacobite cause as Butcher Cumberland's musket fire at Culloden. As well as the torrid affair with the young Duchesse de Montbazon in Paris and the tragic tale of Clementine Wilkinshaw, which resulted in a child, the author looks at the Prince's other relationships with women, from the formative one with his mother, to his disastrous late dynastic marriage to Louise de Stolberg, in which he was left a lonely, elderly cuckold, comforted by his daughter in his last years.

London. June, 1897. When Herron Strangways sees a man killed by a locomotive, he dismisses it as part of the rotten day he's been having. Then he learns the victim was a secret agent whose death was murder, and Herron is the chief suspect. To save his own skin, he must elude the police and the real killers while untangling the clues to a plot to assassinate the Queen. First, he must locate a woman he glimpsed briefly at the train station, who may unwittingly hold the key to unlocking the conspiracy. But who and where is she? He must also discover a connection between terrorists planning a coup against the British government and an unidentified object flying over the United States, if one exists. Herron has three days. He should live so long.

Damn' Rebel Bitches takes a totally fresh approach to the history of the Jacobite Rising by telling fascinating stories of the many women caught up in the turbulent events of 1745-46. Many historians have ignored female participation in the '45: this book aims to redress the balance. Drawn from many original documents and letters, the stories that emerge of the women - and their men - are often touching, occasionally light-hearted and always engrossing.

"The subject of this book - an Italian-born exiled prince - has become an icon of misjudged romanticism and Scottish nationalism; much of this is due to the way he has been portrayed over the years. This study traces how the enduring visual image of Prince Charles Edward Stuart was created, beginning with his birth in 1720 and ending with the exhibition of John Pettie's Prince Charles Edward Stuart Entering the Ballroom at Holyrood - probably still the most enduring and popular image of the Stuart prince - at the Royal Academy in 1892."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
