Nell Gwynne - the archetypal tart-with-a-heart-lived the classic rags-to-riches story: the poor woman who fell in love with a King. Nelly - as she was known - also stole the heart of the nation and has held the affection of generations since. A star of the stage - an accomplished and much loved comedienne - she caught the eye of King Charles II, becoming one of his mistresses and bearing two of his four children. Their relationship lasted over 16 years and only ended with his death in 1685. This highly entertaining and readable book is the most authoritative biography written to date. The author's extensive research has uncovered new evidence and provides a wealth of detail offering an intriguing insight into the domestic life of Nell. It is a hugely enjoyable, witty and uplifting account of a fascinating woman from a remarkable time.
