A rewritten, expanded and updated edition of Peter Pininksi's fascinating account of the early life of Prince Charles Edward Stuart. It looks at his multi-cultural upbringing at the exiled British court in Rome and the traits he inherited from his Polish mother, Princess Clementina Sobieska. It also presents the full stories of the prince’s only child, Charlotte, Duchess of Albany, her mother, the tragic Scottish Jacobite Clementina Walkinshaw as well as the fates of Charlotte’s three children, one of whom has living descendants. Includes 70 portraits, many of which have never before been published, alongside illustrations of Jacobite-related objects belonging to the National Museums Scotland.
