Inhaltsangabe: When the eighteen-year-old Henry, Prince of Wales, died in 1612, the hopes of a new generation had been dashed. The young Prince, eldest son of James I and brother of the future Charles I, epitomized the yearning of those who wished England to lead Protestant Europe in a great crusade against the might of Catholic Spain. He embodied the aspirations of a new era in the arts, creating a court which, had he lived, would have rivalled those of the Medici grand dukes in Florence. Using original documents and sources, this is the fascinating story of a great renaissance life tragically cut short.
