Sir William Temple, handsome and intelligent, son of a Parliamentarian, became a celebrated essayist and diplomat in Charles II's time. Captivating him from their first meeting, when he was just 20, Dorothy Osborne was an intellectual romantic from a family of Royalists. After a long courtship, in which Dorothy rejected numerous other suitors, they married in 1654.Their union had been fiercely opposed by both their families, but they went on to build a passionate marriage that brought personal tragedies and public triumphs and betrayals."@en ;
