"The most romantic figure of modern times Bonnie Prince Charles is the subject of this book. It is the human biography of the last Stuart Prince of Wales, in which the author depicts the man himself, analyzes his feeling and his charms, admires his boldness and his courage, and traces the origin of his foibles and his weaknesses, without exaggeration or condemnation." "The House of Stuart, originally Stewart, was a European royal house that originated in Scotland. The dynasty's patrilineal Breton ancestors had held the office of High Steward of Scotland since the 12th century, after arriving by way of Norman England. The royal Stewart line was founded by Robert II, and they were Kings and Queens of Scots from the late 14th century until the union with England in 1707. Mary, Queen of Scots, was brought up in France, where she adopted the French spelling of the name, Stuart. Her son, James VI of Scotland, inherited the thrones of England and Ireland upon the death of Elizabeth I in 1603. Except for the period of the Commonwealth, 1649–1660, the Stuarts were monarchs of the British Isles and its growing empire, until the death of Queen Anne in 1714. "
