The story of the unique relationship between King Charles
II and George Villiers, 2nd Duke of Buckingham is one of
the most entertaining and shocking of ill-advised royal
friendships. David Hanrahan's new book paints a vivid
picture of friendship, exile, betrayal, murder, adultery,
infamy, alchemy and scandal in royal and courtly circles.
Hanrahan investigates why Charles remained largely true
to his childhood friend despite Buckingham's ingratitude
and his often fierce satire against the king. He gives us
an engrossing and rambunctious story, at the same time
offering insights into royal and courtly life and the
power of the favourite.
