The prince who would be king, the life and death of Henry Stuart, Sarah Fraser
Cover
Author: Fraser, Sarah
Publication year: 2018
Language: English
Classification: 920 HEN
ISBN: 9780007548101
Notes:
Originally published: 2017
In this rich and lively book, Sarah Fraser seeks to restore Henry Stuart to his place in history. Set against the bloody traumas of the Thirty Years' War, the writing of the King James Bible, the Gunpowder Plot and the dark tragedies pouring from Shakespeare's quill, Henry's life is the last great forgotten Jacobean tale: the story of a man who, had he lived, might have saved Britain from King Charles I, his spaniels and the Civil War with its appalling loss of life his misrule engendered.

Amazing account of a part of our British history that I never knew existed. It opened my eyes to the reign of the Stuarts. A long read - but worth it.
