The authors take us inside Charles' palace, where we will meet court favorites, amusing confidants, advisors jockeying for political power, mistresses past and present, as well as key figures in Charles' inner circle, including his "pimpmasters" and his personal pox doctor.
The astonishing personal life of Charles II reveals much about the man he was and why he lived and ruled as he did. The King's Bed tells the compelling story of a king ruled by his passion.

Interesting, well written, and excellently read.
Generally biographies of monarchs concentrate on the politics, while leaving out the personal aspects. For Charles II the personal was the political. Beautifully read by Steve West, who ought to have many more opportunities in the historical realm of book narration.
