Jean Plaidy ✓ ebook A 30 year old Charles II is rapturously welcomed back on the throne after years in exile Needing funds he marries the wealthy Portuguese princess Catherine of Braganza But this is an unsuccessful match to his unattractive princess fails to provide him with an heir and A Health Unto His Majesty is the story of Charles II told mostly through his interactions with his wife Catherine of Braganza and his most famous mistress Barbara VilliersIt begins with Charles triumphant return to England and the throne The beginning of this book was very promising and I thought I was going to like it a lot Barbara Villiers was portrayed as greedy grasping and stupid which made little sense to me Every smart move that Barbara made was attributed to someone else's advice Everything the king gave her was attributed to his wanting to be relieved of her whining as opposed to any affection he might have had for her Jean Plaidy uite obviously disliked Barbara but I think she must also have disliked Charles Stuart for having had a relationship with herCatherine of Braganza's story started off interesting I've not read much of her and I appreciated the back story of her childhood her reading Charles letters her interaction with her mother her waiting for Sandwich to take her back to England I was prepared to like Catherine Her personality changed after she reached England though Her whininess and her sad unreuited love for Charles were just irritating to read aboutThe middle of the book was slow for me possibly because I already knew much of the story and thought it was told better by Susan Holloway ScottThe ending of the book the Titus Oates drama was so overly boring to me that I completely lost interest The last 30 pages of this book left a sour taste in my mouth and ruined what affection I was still feeling for it by that point
