About This Book

Disease, disaster and disability plagued the Stuart Family during the period they ruled England - 1603 to 1714. Dementia in James I, the beheading of Charles I, acute mercury poisoning in Charles II, a nosebleed in James II, acute hemorrhagic smallpox in Mary II, and lupus erythematosus in Queen Anne took them 'off the throne', one by one. In this title, Frederick Holmes has documented the medical problems of this unfortunate family.
