I’m pleased to be a guest of the Seventeenth Century Lady with an article I wrote about Charles II’s Scottish coronation. This occurred on January 1, 1651 in the Kirk of Scone. It occurred against the backdrop of Cromwell’s invasion of Scotland and has the distinction of being the last coronation to be held in Scotland.

Four months earlier, a teen-aged John Law was on Doon Hill, Dunbar, Scotland confident that the Scottish Royal Forces would defeat Cromwell. Early the next morning his optimism ended, and his life was permanently altered. #TheImmigrant . https://www.myfourleggedstool.com/3-september-1650-dunbar-scotland.html
