The Cavaliers in Exile 1640-1660

Hardback
As a consequence of their support for the royalist cause in the English civil wars, several hundred Cavaliers, often accompanied by their families, went into exile in Europe for periods ranging from a few weeks to twenty years. This is an original, ground-breaking study, that identifies which Cavaliers went into exile and explains how they coped with the wide range of circumstances that they encountered in the different countries in which they settled.
