The Stuarts
Bonnie Prince Charlie
Prince Charles Edward Louis John Casimir Sylvester Severino Maria Stuart (31 December 1720 – 31 January 1788) commonly known as Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Charles was the second Jacobite pretender to the thrones of Great Britain, and Ireland. This claim was as the eldest son of the first Jacobite pretender, James Francis Edward Stuart, and grandson of James II.
He was the last legitimate heir of the House of Stuart.
After the House of Hanover succeeded to the British throne in 1714, the Jacobite risings continued, and intensified. They continued until the last Jacobite Rebellion (“the Forty-Five”), led by Charles, who was soundly defeated at the Battle of Culloden in 1746. This ended any realistic hope of a Stuart restoration.
