The Murder of Rizzio: Being Lord Ruthven's own Account of the Transaction; After Culloden: or, The Escape of the Young Chevalier, 1746

Patrick Ruthven Ruthven

This book is a sensational and controversial firsthand narrative of one of the most notorious events in Scottish history, the murder of David Rizzio, the Italian secretary of Mary Queen of Scots, in 1566. The author, Lord Ruthven, was one of the conspirators involved in the assassination, and his account provides a chilling insight into the motives, methods, and aftermath of the crime. The book also includes an epilogue in which Lord Ruthven recounts his role in the Jacobite uprising of 1745. This is a gripping and macabre tale of intrigue, passion, and betrayal.
