by Roy Strong. A complex, withdrawn yet assertive figure, the Prince, evoking the former glory of Elizabethan England, was the antithesis of his father, James I. With their markedly different personalities and their sharply opposed views on the religious and political issues of pre-Civil War England, father and son inevitably clashed continually. James, moreover, found himself outshone by an heir whose far-ranging interests embraced not only the arts but the Navy, equestrianism, garden design, festivals and the sciences.
