“Bonnie Prince Charlie” and his gallant Highlanders invading England, only to
turn back at Derby and subsequently be defeated at Culloden is part of the
cultural glue that holds ‘Great Britain’ together.
But what if things had turned out differently?
What if a broken carriage wheel and an inattentive Royal Navy officer had
changed the course of history? Could the Prince and his Scottish, Irish, Welsh
and English supporters have reached London, deposed George II and driven him
into exile in Hanover? And how would our history have changed if the House of
Stuart had been restored to the British throne in 1745?
Presented as a historical text, 'The Year of The Prince' tells the tale of a
history which might have been and chronicles a successful Jacobite Uprising with
many different consequences for Great Britain. It is the first of five volumes
in 'The House of Stuart Sequence'. Future volumes will tell of the ongoing
effects of a Stuart Restoration on the history of Great Britain, Europe, the
Americas and beyond. The whole series will travel the years from 1745 to 1900 by
which time we discover 'A World Turned Upside Down'.
