In The Royal Stuarts, "well-grounded and nimble" (Booklist) author Allan Massie dishes up an enthralling slice of history from 14th-century Scotland, when Robert II became the first Stewart (later spelled Stuart) king of Scotland, to the 18th century, when Queen Anne united England, Scotland, and Ireland. Novelist, journalist, and newspaper columnist Massie knows his history and how to keep readers hooked, combining vivid individual portraits of key figures and universal themes of dramatic interest (loyalty, lechery, power, and piety). Fans of Alison Weir's Tudor-centric histories may enjoy visiting the Stuart clan for a change of pace in this comprehensive and engaging account (complete with family trees) of their dynasty.
