Of False Accounts

The truth regarding the birth of Prince James, Duke of Monmouth and the marriage of his mother and father

Covent Garden, November 1694 (NS)

James Stuart, later known as the Duke of Monmouth, was born in the house of his great Aunt, Margaret Gosfright, on the 9th April 1649. There is no question that his father was King Charles II of England and his mother was Lucy Walter. The question is were they married? The young Prince James was never destined to become King and some believe his rightful place was usurped by his Uncle, James, Duke of York. Was his claim to the throne removed through political and financial convenience?

It is not unsurprising that in his Uncles account, James is a bastard and his mother a common whore. What is surprising is that this has been taken as the truth by so many, when all those in and around the Exiled Court in ’49 supported James, Duke of Monmouth’s claim as the true King of England and many died to uphold this view. The evidence is out there.

If your mind is closed to the truth, either because it is uncomfortable to learn what you know is a lie or you see little point in trying to change to past, then stop reading and keep your mind locked. If however, you would like to know what those in Rotterdam knew on the 9th April ’49 then these pages are for you.

Why was the marriage between Charles and Lucy painted out of our history?

Why was she written off as a poor whore and ‘mean creature’?

Why was her Aunt arrested for speaking the truth of the marriage, when she was a witness?

Surely you must wonder why so many died supporting his claim, when they witnessed the events. So, have you been mislead by false historians, down-right liars and his Uncles beneficiaries?

This is my account of the truth, but I’ll let you come to your own conclusion.
