Long live Charles III!

I don't usually go in for 'on this days'. But on 31st January 1788 Bonnie Prince Charlie - Charles III to us Jacobites - died in Rome. Oddly enough, the Prince has played a significant role in my life, and above is a film I made in 2013 about a portrait of Charles painted in Edinburgh - where I now live - in 1745.

(NB, it's an illicit You Tube version - not made by me! - so has been broken down into 15 minute sections. Parts 2, 3 and 4 are here, here and here.)
