The accessible personality of the Duke of York as presented here is due to the fact that while in exile he led an independent life, serving as a colonel in the French army under Marshal Turenne. Charles's dogs would've been just about the only creatures whose affection for him had nothing to do with his position as King, even in exile.
Perhaps his immediate family gave him that, perhaps not.
Dogs are very hierarchical and in a sense, every master of a dog is a king with a courtier. But when this courtier asks a favor, no guile is involved and the love is genuine. Charles, when king, is said to have been remarkably cynical about the people around him -- knowing that many with their hands out had no sincerity about them whatever, yet passing out the favors anyway. I bet Charles appreciated the dog's defecating as much as the others did -- if not this day, then on others. So you may want to raise a glass of sack to salute the memory of our departed diarist on the 26th of May.
He died at a. Or, if you prefer to mourn his passing on the actual, th anniversary, you could wait until 6 June. Pepys "was buried in St. Olave's [Church] on 5th June at 9 p. Olave's is having a memorial service on Wednesday, 28 May, p. Yes, that's been bowdlerized. The Latham and Matthews edition has: "which shit in the boat. The following is a more emotive and animated eye witness account of the landing at Dover. The Duke of York kissed him several times. The Duke of Gloucester,whilst all the rest were shouting "God save the King!
The King was in a plain-stuff suit, with a plume of red feathers, the Duke of York with a white one, the Duke of Gloucester green". A propos of dogs, the Duke of York also loved and trusted them more than men ,and took them on board with him. During the Anglo-Dutch War ,when his ship was ablaze ,he yelled out orders to "save the dogs and Colonel Churchill!
They have seen a vicious and bloody Civil War, a king beheaded a thing unthinkable in English politics , a repressive Puritan theocracy think The Handmaid's Tale , and a day so long awaited and planned for It is history in the making and they know it. The extraordinary relief of tension catalyzes their happiness: they are drunk with adrenaline.
Not only that, but here is ordinary Sam Pepys at the center of it all, and the Duke of York -- royal blood! Sublime and ridiculous all jumbled together in one eventful day.

Pinch me, thinks Sam, if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, if I hadn't written it in this private diary little does he know , I wouldn't have believed it myself. A famous dog of the civil war was "Boye"who belonged to Charles' cousin, Prince Rupert. It was the son of "Puddle", a poodle which had been given to the prince by Lord Arundell during his captivity in Austria.
The Roundheads attributed Rupert with diabolical powers, perhaps due to his tall dark appearance, firey red cloak , foreign accent ,and the fact that he also kept a pet hare! They saw "Boye" as his familiar, who went behind enemy lines and brought back information to its master. At Marston Moor, Boye broke loose and followed Rupert into battle where it was sadly killed. This is an illustration of Charles' landing at Dover from Firth's biography of Monck.
For which Charles is the spaniel"Cavalier King Charles"named after? I presume is Charles the 2nd but why cavalier then? The "Cavalier" part of the breed name appears to stem from the fact that in the 19th century the breed was bred away from the appearance that the dogs had possessed in the 17th century. Starting in the s an attempt was made by a small number of breeders to rebreed to the old appearance.

This variety then received the name "Cavalier King Charles. But there was a need felt to distinguish between the two varieties of King Charles Spaniels.

Blundell, Crosby Records ed. Sundry tall persons went under it, but there were none that could reach it. His funeral effigy now at Westminster Abbey measures 6 ft 2 ins. Which is strange considering his father was only just over 5ft tall, which is why most of his official portraits show him on horseback, or seated with his queen, rather than standing.
There's no doubt that they were definitely father and son, so just shows how people's height can vary over a single generation. The dog in the boat. If you read the passage carefully, it seems that the dog and Pepys were not in the same boat as the king, so Charles probably wouldn't have known of the mess the dog made. Antonia Fraser suggests that Charles II's height and appearance were a throwback to his maternal ancestors, the Medicis of Florence:. But his appearance was certainly a complete throwback to his Italian ancestors, the Medici Dukes of Tuscany.
Although not directly descended from Lorenzo the Magnificent there is a striking resemblance in their portraits. Enough, already, with the moist-eyed Royalism! Now as then, surely many contemplating this period are deeply queasy about the turn events took in For, despite all the absolutist posturing of the monarchy and its fans, after something changed for good in British political life, thank goodness. The Stuart monarchs - and the Tudors for the most part - did not claim to be superior to other men.
They just claimed to have a completely different role in the society. Bevin was offered the dukedom of Thrombosis: did turn it down after finding it in the Med. Vince boyo, if it's Aneurin you're talking about, the surname is Bevan from Welsh ap Ifan. Nobody called Ernest Bevin a champagne socialist. It is my one form of continuous fiction.
Paul Brightwell should realise that the churlish interpretation perpetually read into English history by Americans reflects more on the latter than the former. That Charless II was indisputably the most popluar monarch in English history owes everything to the recent experience of the alternative which had been endured painfully by the populace for over a decade.
That the US constitution gives a Presidential veto to one person over the two houses of the Parliament, and allows for Presidential "pardons" of criminals reflects just how close the presidency was intended to be to the role of the English King or Queen. Q: Why is it that bozos like Ronald Reagan and Calvin Coolidge, sleazeballs like Kennedy and Clinton and humourless twerps like Eisenhower and Carter are so revered by US citizens and not described as a "sorry, in-bred rabble"?
Or maybe it is this commitment to "democracy" that allows Bush to get over Gore because the folks in Florida didn't quite get how to fill in the voting card. About ten of the clock in the morning the fleet came to the anchor in Dover road. About one of the clock in the afternoon the King and the Dukes of York and Gloucester went off on board into the General's barge, Captain Cuttance steering the barge and the General standing before the house of the barge. Beale's brigantine rowed into the shore ahead of the barge, the Vice Admiral upon the starboard quarter and Rear Admiral upon the larborad, divers other boats of the fleet in company; and between three and four of the clock in the afternoon the King's most sacred majesty and their Royal Highnesses the Dukes of York and Gloucester went on shore upon the strand a little northward of Dover pier, where immediately General Monk met him, and when General Mountague had attened his Majesty and the Dukes unto General Mock have had the honour to kiss their hands, he presently went back on board the Charles and sailed that night into the Downs.
The Charles fired 3 rounds and the rest of the fleet 5 rounds in salutes.
Friday 25 May 1660
We get a brief glimpse of Charles' own thoughts at this time in a private letter that he wrote to his 15 year old sister, Princess Henriette-Anne, from Canterbury on May 26th I arrived yesterday at Dover where I found Monk with a great number of the nobility who almost overwhelmed me with friendship and joy at my return. My head is so prodigiously dazed by the acclamation of the people and by quantities of business that I know not whether I am writing sense or no, therefore you will pardon me if I do not tell you any more, only that I am entirely yours.
