Anna Keay presents her biography of the warm, courageous and handsome Duke of Monmouth, a man who by his own admission ‘lived a very dissolute and irregular life’, but who was prepared to risk everything for honour and justice: a sweeping history of late-Stuart England, and a prism through which to view the turbulent decades in which England as we know it was forged.
Anna Keay, BA in Modern History from Oxford University, and PhD in 17th-century British history from the University of London, was a curator at Hampton Court Palace and Curatorial Director of English Heritage, before becoming Director of the Landmark Trust. Her books include The Magnificent Monarch “A very valuable book … full of arresting details.” BBC History Magazine; The Elizabethan Tower of London, and The Crown Jewels.
