Barbara Cartland: The Private Life of Charles II

Barbara Cartland writes another biography about a English king that she admires in Charles II. Born to Charles I and Henrietta Maria, Cartland writes his story with chapters of the women he loved, beginning with his mother and listing names that feature in the history of England!

Francis Marshall illustrates Charles II as we envision him, with long hair, a lacy cravat, and mustache! He wears rich, vivid robes and we see two beautiful ladies behind him, dressed in the clothing of the era.

This is an interesting book and Barbara Cartland knows how to make history come alive!
