A Royal Passion

The Turbulent Marriage of Charles I and Henrietta Maria

From quarrels, passion, treason to execution, discover one of the great overlooked love stories of history.

However Henrietta's Catholicism fuelled rumours of improper influence over a supposedly helpless king. Unable to trust his Parliament, Charles's fear for the queen's safety plummeted the country into civil war and forced her to flee abroad, never to see her husband again.
