Prize winning author Sarah Fraser through her latest book, The Prince who Would be King – transports us to the 1600s, and discusses the life and death of Henry Stuart
Stuart was born at Stirling Castle, Scotland in 1594, he died in agony at St James’s Palace, London in 1612.
His life spans an extraordinary period in history – the Union of Crowns , the gunpowder Plot, the run up to the longest, bloodiest European war until World War I, the founding of British America and the beginning of a world class Royal Art Collection of books, paintings, coins, jewels, armour and gorgeous palaces.
Acclaimed for its dramatic recreation of a life cut short, the book is now the subject of a BBC documentary, The Best King we Never Had.
