Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

For almost a century the islands of Orkney and Shetland were under the rule of the Stewart earls, father and son; a rule remarkable for its infamous reputation in island history. Exploring why they were held in such low esteem, Anderson presents a study of the two earls and life in the islands during their reigns, from Robert Stewart's seizure of power in Orkney in the 1560s to 1615, when his son, the ill-starred 'Black Patie', was executed for treason.
