Portrait of Charles Edward Stuart (the ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’) also known as The Young Pretender. He was born on 31 December 1720, son of ‘The Old Pretender’ and grandson of the exiled Stuart King James VII of Scots and II of England. One of the great romantic figures of Scottish history, he fought to reclaim the throne of Great Britain for the Catholic Stuart dynasty as ‘Charles III.’
