Scottish History

Richard J. Finlay

This chapter notes the curious absence of work on the monarchy by Scottish historians, as opposed to the shoals of books on the Jacobites. It demonstrates the intimate relationship between the cult of Victoria and that in which the queen projected herself as the true heiress of the Scottish monarchy.
