Monmouths Legitimacy

Myth of the Black Box

For the mainstream historian or supporter of King James II it has been easy to hide behind the myth of Monmouth’s illegitimacy. As this myth that has come from the mouth of James II himself and no other. It is not strange that the only man that benefits most from the illegitimacy of Monmouth is James II. The same man that made suggesting Monmouth was legitimate was high treason and punishable by death. Yet, even today historians propagate this myth.
