Here is all the splendour and frivolity of the court of Charles II and the story of his marriage to Catherine of Braganza, whom Charles called his “Little Rose”.  She had led a sheltered life, convent reared until 18 years of age.  Despite Charles many amorous meanderings, Catherine was his most trusted confidante.  The Great Plague of 1665, the Great Fire of London, the political intrigues of the day and the bawdy humour of Wycherley’s comedies – it’s all vividly recreated here.
