'His Little hour of royalty': Charles Edward Stuart at the Palace of Holyroodhouse

'His Little hour of royalty': Charles Edward Stuart at the Palace of Holyroodhouse
-

Evening lecture in association with Society of Antiquaries of Scotland

In the autumn of 1745 Charles Edward Stuart established a court at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, an episode that was later described by Andrew Lang as ‘his little hour of royalty.’ Yet, at this time, no one could have predicted for certain the outcome of the prince’s campaign. This lecture will challenge Lang’s glib assessment of the Stuart court at Holyrood, re-presenting it as a crucial part of, rather than an adjunct to, Charles’ restoration attempt.
