The Royal Stuarts
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
The Stuart dynasty ruled Scotland for three centuries and Great Britain and Ireland for one. Theirs is a tale of brilliance and bravery, all too often marred by disaster - the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, the Civil War, and the overthrow of James VII and II. This adventurous, opinionated history offers a sympathetic reading of their strengths and weaknesses, from their rise to power in 14th century Scotland to the bitter exile after the failure of the Jacobite uprisings.
