The Prince who would be King: Henry Stuart, Prince of Wales

Eldest son of James VI & I, Henry died in 1612, aged only 18.  His huge funeral is the first recorded state funeral for a prince – only monarchs and consorts had them before him. By his untimely death, what he had achieved and had in hand, suggests he is one of the greatest kings we never had. And then he disappears. Millions of us love a mystery. This biography recreates a lost prince, to find out why he was forgotten, and to restore him to our national memory. Come and hear a dramatic tale of glamour, wit, heartbreak and loss.
