Storyline

King Charles II knows that many of the Lords are plotting against him and moves to take control of the situation. He relocates temporarily to Oxford forcing Parliament to move there as well. He then dissolves that institution but doesn't call elections. He also orders his brother and heir James, the Duke of York, to leave temporarily and relocate to Scotland. Churchill and Godolphin accompanies him but James proves to be difficult and cruel towards the people. Sarah Churchill is going to have a child, much to everyone's delight, though she doesn't necessarily look forward to having her mother stay with her during her lying-in. She also continues her close friendship with Princess Anne, James second daughter, who is to be married to Prince George of Denmark. Anne names her a Lady of the Bedchamber, with a stipend of £200 per year. Written by garykmcd
