King Charles II, Paperback
4.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


Following a youth of poverty and bitter exile after his father's execution, the ousted king first challenged, then made his magnificent escape from, Cromwell's troops before he was eventually restored to his throne in triumph in 1660. Spanning his life both before and after the Restoration, Antonia Fraser's lively and fascinating biography captures all the vitality of the man and the expansiveness of the age.

Review by

Comprehensive biography, although maybe not the most exciting writing. It is very 'pro Charles II', and I have read before accounts that are not that one sided. Still, I have to say that author provides very convincing arguments in Charles favor.
