Historian Linda Porter’s fourth book will be published by Macmillan in the UK on October 6th. ‘Royal Renegades’ is about the children of Charles I and Henrietta Maria.
‘The fact that the English Civil War led to the execution of King Charles I in January 1649 is well known, as is the restoration of his eldest son as Charles II eleven years later. But what happened to the king’s six surviving children is far less familiar.
Casting new light on the heirs of the doomed king and his unpopular but indefatigable Catholic queen, Henrietta Maria, acclaimed historian Linda Porter brings to life their personalities, legacies, feuds and rivalries for the first time.’
