520    At first light on July 6, 1685, the last battle ever 
       fought on English soil was almost over. On one side of the
       watery pasture at Sedgemoor was the dashing thirty-six-
       year-old Duke of Monmouth, the charismatic son of Charles 
       II, adored by the people. A reformer, a romantic, and a 
       Protestant, he was fighting the army he had once commanded,
       in opposition to his uncle, King James II. Yet even before
       he launched his attack, Monmouth knew he would die.  Born 
       in the backstreets of Rotterdam in the year his 
       grandfather Charles I was executed, Monmouth was the child
       of a turbulent age. His mother, the first of Charles II's 
       famous liaisons, played courtesan to the band of raw and 
       restless young royalists forced abroad by the changing 
       political current. Conceived during a revolution and born 
       into a republic, Monmouth, by the time he was twelve, was 
       the sensation of the most licentious and libertine court 
       in Europe. Adored by the king and drenched in honors, he 
       became the greatest rake and reprobate of the age.  On his
       path to becoming "the last royal rebel," Monmouth 
       consorted with a spectacular list of contemporaries: Louis
       XIV was his mentor, William of Orange his confidant, Nell 
       Gwyn his friend, the future Duke of Marlborough his pupil,
       D'Artagnan his lieutenant, John Dryden his censor, and 
       John Locke his comrade. Anna Keay expertly chronicles 
       Monmouth's life and offers splendid insight into this 
       crucial and dramatic period in English history.
