This review is from: The King's Henchman: Stuart Spymaster and Architect of the British Empire (Kindle Edition)
I found this an excellent introduction into the Stuart courts of Charles I and Charles II. It is very readable, thoroughly researched and brim full of facts. It gives clear insights into the charActers of Henry Jermyn, Queen Henrietta Maria and the two kings as well as their relationships with some of the major figures of 17th century British and European history. I found the role and influence Jermyn had quite fascinating. There is some repetition in places but overall I would recommend it.
