In this biography of 'the Merry Monarch', Christopher Falkus seeks to show why this is so and indicates that the secret lay not so much in the positive achievements of his reign, as in the essentially human qualities which set him apart from other sovereigns. But Charles, of course, was more than a witty, tolerant, urbane man; he was a ruler of three kingdoms - England, Scotland and Ireland - who came to the throne after years of exhausting Civil War and whose first purpose was to reunite his war torn realms. His was a lifetime crowded with struggle and conflict in which he triumphed to preside over a society whose creative achievements in all fields are almost unparalleled in history.
