In recent years Jacobitism has become a subject of growing interest to historians amid lively academic controversy over various aspects of the subject. The least-known phase of Jacobitism, although in many ways the most important, is the period 1689 to 1718, when the Stuart court in exile was at Saint-Germain-en-Laye, the residence of the kings of France until Louis XIV built Versailles.
Based on original research in a wide range of contemporary sources, this collection of original essays illuminates the early development of Jacobitism, placing the movement in a coherent historical context. The volume includes a substantial introduction by Edward Corp on the Stuart court and a major essay by Eveline Cruickshanks on the importance of Jacobitism in Britain and its links with the exiled court.
Other essays discuss Jacobite ideology and the Jacobite press; the internal workings and external relations of the exiled court; the abortive invasion of England in 1692; and Jacobite exiles - comparable in numbers and influence to the Huguenots in England - in France.
