Caitrin Bonnie Prince Charlie - Good or Bad (51* d) RE: Bonnie Prince Charlie - Good or Bad 19 Dec 00

All opinion on the Bonny Prince (which Matt will undoubtedly be here to disagree with shortly) is that he was more or less a dolt. A charming, dashing, nice little political pawn. Yes, he was exciting and handsome and all those wonderful things, but he didn't have the sense that God gave animal crackers. The Jacobites never had a chance to win, never in a million years. While it makes for great songs, the Jacobite rebellion decimated the highlands. Charlie let himself be drawn in to the idea of taking the throne, but it just wasn't a really sound thought.
