schema:reviewBody""Court studies and Jacobitism have both received considerable attention from historians in recent years, yet so far no attempt has been made to provide a comprehensive examination of the Jacobite court in exile after the revolution of 1688-89. This book takes a completely fresh look at the Stuart court in France from 1689 to 1718, the years when the Jacobite movement posed its greatest threat to the post-revolution governments in London. What emerges is a major revision of an important aspect of late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century British and European history." "The Stuart court at Saint-Germain-en-Laye is revealed as not only large and well financed, but also as magnificently located in a spectacular royal palace vacated only recently by Louis XIV, in very close contact with the French court at Versailles, yet maintaining the traditions, organisation and ceremonial of the English court at Whitehall. A special feature of the book is the attention given to the cultural patronage of the court, which employed the leading French portraitists and had a major influence on the development of French baroque music. The book also shows how the Stuart court in France came to an end, and explains why and how it has since been so badly misrepresented."--Jacket."
