What’s On at Midland Ancestors –
Wolverhampton: Prince Rupert of The Rhine – King Charles I’s Pirate Prince
Wed 23rd February @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm GMT
An exciting presentation by Max Keen who will be dressed in period costume.
Prince Rupert was the nephew of King Charles I and one of the English Civil War’s most paradoxical heroes. Handsome, impetuous and courageous, he was the epitome of the ‘Cavalier’, yet he was born a German prince and a protestant. As the Royalist General of Horse, he was a brilliant strategist, but a volatile and impetuous tactician. He also served the royalist cause as an Admiral and in later life commanded fleets against the Dutch.
