Description

Charles II is restored to the English throne, and his court is lively and even scandalous. The country is eager for succession to be clear and certain: The next king will be the son of Charles II and his queen, Catherine of Braganza. Yet Catherine, daughter of the king of Portugal and a Catholic, has never been popular with the English people. She is also having great difficulty conceiving an heir, even as many of Charles's well-known mistresses are bearing his children with ease. Catherine is aware that courtiers close to Charles are asking him to divorce her and take another wife--yet she is determined to hold her title in the face of all odds.
The ninth novel in the beloved Queens of England series, "The Merry Monarch's Wife" brings Catherine of Braganza to life and plunges readers into the tumultuous world of Restoration England.
