Description
Jane Whorwood (161284) was one of Charles I's closest confidantes, an extraordinary woman who emerges in this biography as a forgotten key player in the English Civil War. The daughter of Scots courtiers at Whitehall and the wife of an Oxfordshire squire, she helped the Royalist cause by spying for the king when the court moved to Oxford in 1642, and by smuggling at least three-quarters of a ton of gold to help pay for his army. When Charles was held by the Parliamentarians for three years, she organized money, correspondence, escape attempts, astrological advice, and a ship to carry him to Holland. Yet after Charles's execution in 1649, Jane's marriage collapsed in one of the most public and acrimonious separation cases of the 17th century.
