Charles II, 1965, Series 561


Charles II was the 9th title in the 561 series, colourfully written by L du Garde Peach and illustrated by John Kenney.

In this lively telling of the life of the Merry Monach, Peach also tells us the other side to the story of the English Civil War – the other side of which is recounted in ‘Oliver Cromwell’.  But this book also dwells on the years after the restitution of the monarchy, including the Great Plague, the Great Fire of London and the great re-building.
