The character of Charles I is crucial to our understanding of the English Civil War - the most far-reaching political upheaval in the country's history. Charles II is one of the figures with which the nation enjoys identifying itself. Charles I and Charles II are the two most famous Stuart kings.

Through sources as varied as masks, statues, poems, medals, and contemporary written records, a picture of these Stuart monarchs, their characters and their politics, emerges. Ollard writes with such precision and intelligence: brushing up against the brightest 17th century writers has made his own prose deliciously recondite, and his judgements - and illustrations - are very good. Not the first book you'd want to read about the Stuart kings,but indispensable second.

"Remarkably and immensely readable...A just yet compassionate study of two complex, muddled, fissured human beings caught in the most difficult of crafts--kingship...It should not be missed by anyone interested in the Stuarts or in the personalities of Charles I and Charles II: indeed, any reader will be greatly stimulated by it."--J.H. Plumb, New York Review of Books. Two kings, father and son...and yet, their personalities could hardly have differed more. Through sources as varied as masks, statues, poems, medals, and contemporary written records, a picture of these Stuart monarchs, their characters and their politics, emerges.
