King's Jaunt [ePub]

by John Prebble

George IV's great journey to Scotland in 1822 was the first visit of a British monarch to Scotland in nearly two hundred years. From the mock pageantry of the Highlanders to the carefully stage-managed rediscovery of the Scottish Regalia, this trip was a key event in the creation of romantic Scotland. Behind it all, lay the great stage manager, Sir Walter Scott. Scott was able to override the grim reality of day to day life with this stirring blend of pomp and pageantry and even stirred up a surge of support for an otherwise unpopular monarch and monarchy. This book was originally published by Collins.
