Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites

Viccy Coltman, The University of Edinburgh

Discover the Jacobite rebellion and the fight for the throne of Britain

The Jacobites, loyal followers of an exiled king, sparked political upheaval in Scotland. From the Glorious Revolution of 1688 to the Battle of Culloden in 1746, their story is one of rebellions, plots, espionage, tartan-clad heroes and bloody defeat. It is a story clouded by failure and cloaked in romance, making it sometimes difficult to disentangle from the turbulent historical reality.

On this course you will unravel the Jacobite story. Using objects from National Museums Scotland you will discover the lives of the rulers and their followers who sought to change history.

This course is for anyone interested in the history of the Stuart dynasty, their exile and the series of Jacobite campaigns to regain the throne of Britain. No previous knowledge of the period is required.

No specific tools or software required.
