The Young and Lonely King
The 'Young and Lonely King' charts the life of Prince Charles, Duke of Albany, an embattled boy who was baptised in anticipation of an early death. The result is a historical tale that is steeped in tragedy as Jane Lane brings to life a man masked in misery. From the death of his brother, Henry, which left him lonely, vulnerable and under the influence of Buckingham, to his disastrous marriage with Henrietta Maria, a spoilt, capricious woman, this is a very human tale about a very human king.
