Summary

Bonnie Prince Charlie�Charles Edward Stuart�is a name known to all. He was one of the most romantic figures in British history, yet his ambitious project for the Stuart restoration was thwarted and his accomplishments nil. The whole adventure lasted 14 months, from 1745 to 1746, encompassed the vicious slaughter of Culloden, and was followed by 40 years of restless exile. Charles is perhaps the perfect example of a hero of a lost cause, a legend created by Scottish nostalgia for a kingdom that had vanished. Based almost entirely on contemporary resources, David Daiche�s distinguished biography, first published in 1973, strips away the romantic myth. Placing Charles directly in 18th�century Europe, with all it political and dynastic intrigue, Bonnie Prince Charlie gives us new insights into his enduring appeal.
