This is the first scholarly biography of the king who is remembered by the English with more popular affection than almost any other. Covering his entire life, it takes in his colourful years as a prince and as an exiled monarch during the Civil War and Interregnum, in addition to his latercareer as effective ruler of three kingdoms. A unique feature of Ronald Hutton's authoritative study is the attention given to Charles's reign over Scotland and Ireland, as well as England, giving us the first united history of the British Isles in this period.The work is based throughout on all the known surviving sources, some of which have never been used before. This lively and comprehensive biography fills an important gap in Stuart historiography, and will be indispensable to anyone interested in the period.

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.

Despite some political turmoil and upheaval linked to ongoing conflict in the clash between Protestantism and Catholicism, the rule of Charles II, who reigned from 1660-1685, was largely a happy time for the kingdom of England, Scotland and Ireland. This exhaustive account of the life and contributions of Charles II provides a probing look at the king, who was a much more complex figure than his moniker The Merry Monarch may suggest.
