Gawd bless 'im.
A Patsy for Dutch Willem and no mistake (just to see how things would go).

I did recently read J.N.P.Watson's book where he postulates that the proof of Charles's marriage to Lucy Walter was suppressed by James, and even when the marriage certificate found 200 years later, it was burnt to save embarrassment (they were big on English conspiracy theories in the 70s I think).
Perhaps it wouldn't be so interesting a hypothesis to the video game generation of today - but worth a read.
