Customer Review

on 20 January 2012
This book is absolutly incredible. Before i read this i had only a vague knowledge of the life of Charles I, altough i knew more about the civil wars from the side of Oliver Cromwell via bokks by Antonia Fraser etc..I knew absolutly nothing about Henrietta Maria.

After reading this i feel i now have a much more in depth knowledge of what took place, and why during the civil wars. I also know a lot more about the characyer of Charles I as a person. He was a very indecisive person but incredibly loving towards his family and friends.

Henrietta i feel is definitly the stronger character out of the two. She definitly was more forward and assertive in what she thought was the right thing to do in different circumstances. She was also a loving mother and very much misunderstood even if she did meddle in religious affairs a little too much.

Overall this book really shows the love that was felt between the couple and their family during a very turbulent time. This period of history has changed the monarchy forever!

BRILLIANT- Highly recommended
