Here Lies Our Sovereign Lord - Jean Plaidy

£7.00

Product description

Remembering his exile and determined not to go travelling again. Charles II hid his secret political game with Louis Quatorze under a cloak of gay immorality. His objects were to keep religious strife and revolution away from his country and the crown on his own head.
Of the women who ministered to his pleasure at this period three were more important to him than others: Nell Gwyn - the orange girl who graduated to actress and kings mistress; Louise de Keroualle, Duchess of Portsmouth sent by Louis into England to act as his spy; and Hortense Mancini the most beautiful woman in the world who came to escape a mad husband obsessed by purity. Each is here vividly recreated and with the famous courtiers Buckingham Rochester and Charles Sackville, and the Dukes of York and Monmouth.
