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.
