Charles Edward Louis John Casimir Silverster Seerino Maria Stuart is better known to history as 'Bonnie Prince Charlie.' In the year of 1745 Charles set sail for France to capture the throne of England for the deposed house of Stuart. It was a gamble at long odds, for Charles sailed with few companions and faced uncertain reception in the Highlands of Scotland. But the events that follow became the stuff of legend as Charles and his army of Highlanders overran Scotland and marched to London. A French naval force failed to invade and Charles was forced to retreat to Scotland. In the following year the bloody Battle of Culloden smashed the clans and ended the Jacobite Rebellion. After many adventures Charles returned to France and the legend of the '45 was born.
