 Bonnie Prince Charlie
Prince Charles Edward Stuart, the ‘Young Pretender’, or as he is perhaps better known to posterity, ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’ was the son of James Stuart, the ‘Old Pretender’, and grandson of the exiled King James II.
As such he was heir to the Jacobite claim to the thrones of Britain, and his ambition to try and recover these for his family, and latterly himself, were to dominate his life.
As he grew older his interest in warfare developed, he spent his early teens building model fortifications, and in 1734 the 14 year old prince was taken by his tutor to visit the Spanish forces besieging the city of Gaeta.

Prince Charlie's subsequent adventures in France and Italy, until his eventual death in Rome over 40 years later, are also covered.
However, the reader is soon moved into those areas we are all familiar with about the life of the Prince and his association with the Scottish Highlands.

 Where is Bonnie Prince Charlie Buried?
The last of the three Royal Stuarts are buried here, the Old and New Pretender, father and son, kings in their own right, as well as Cardinal York, Charlie’s younger brother Henry, who turned to the church instead of the battlefield.
It is almost as if Charlie was desperate to win his father’s approval and, to do so, he was possessed by an obsession to take back what belonged to his father, the throne of England.
Evidently he was his father’s favorite, as evidenced by a comment to a friend, “I really am in love with the little Duke, he is the finest child that can be seen.” Some historians say their personalities were very much alike.
