Rupert without Mary

Maureen Mulvihill, Princeton scholar, who is an expert on Mary Villiers, Duchess of Richmond and Lennox here, has just drawn my attention to this Restoration portrait by Peter Lely of Prince Rupert, nephew of Charles I and one of his finest commanders. Rupert and Mary are the protagonists of The Winter Prince, the first novel in my Civil War trilogy, Terror & Awe: England’s Revolution, the third of which, The King’s Shadow, is planned by Endeavour Press for August. Next week in London I meet the publishers for the first time.
