Catherine of Braganza : Charles Ii's Restoration Queen, Paperback Book

Catherine of Braganza : Charles Ii's Restoration Queen Paperback

Description

Catherine of Braganza, a Portuguese princess, married Charles II in 1662 and became the merry monarch's Restoration queen.

Yet life for her was not so merry - she put up with the king's many mistresses and continuous plots to remove her from the throne.

She lived through times of war, plague and fire. Catherine's marriage saw many trials and tribulations including her inability to produce an heir.

Yet Charles supported his queen throughout the Restoration, remaining devoted to her no matter what.

Outliving her husband, she ended up back in her home country and spent her final days as queen-regent of Portugal.
