Evenings with History Presents “The Drama of Prince Charlie and French Political Protest, 1745 – 1750”

February 2, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Professor Thomas Kaiser presents “The Drama of Prince Charlie and French Political Protest, 1745 – 1750”
Surely one of the most colorful and irresponsible of all
the Stuart princes, Bonnie Prince Charlie, had a major, if
brief impact on French politics in the mid-18th century. Dr.
Kaiser’s presentation shows how the dissolute prince, after
failing to capture the British throne by means of a Frenchbacked
invasion, returned to France to organize a very
un-French publicity campaign to win government support
for a second effort. When instead of subsidizing another
invasion, the French government wound up arresting and
exiling Bonnie Prince Charlie, supporters of the Prince
unleashed a vicious attack on the French king and his
mistress Mme de Pompadour for betraying the popular
“hero,” an attack that would leave lasting scars on the
French monarchy.
