King Charles II was one of Britain's most charismatic monarchs. His 25-year reign was nothing if not cataclysmic: London was decimated by the Plague and the Great Fire, while England's resources were constantly depleted by wars with Holland and France. Despite all this, he nurtured the most decadent Royal Court of all time. Racy, visceral and violent, this is a romp through a period of history when to move fast was to capture the prize: in politics and in love.
