The Stuarts: an unsuccessful monarchy. Discuss.
Jeremy Black gave a paper with the title above (I added "discuss") at The Maritime Lectures series at Greenwich on A Declaration of Indulgence: assessing the Stuart restoration and its legacy, earlier this year. Surely that can only be the case if one discounts William and Mary and Anne? A bit Jacobite not to consider them Stuarts, yes? (By the way, the program for the conference has this nice portrait miniature of Charles II blown-up. Who is the painter?)
