Kenelm Digby was the son of one of the infamous Gunpowder Plotters, and his father's disgrace and execution affected his whole life. A restless and active man, he was, at various stages in his life, scientist, philosopher, pirate and poet.
Welcomed at courts throughout Europe, he was the particular favourite of the Queen of France who wanted him to be her lover. But Kenelm Digby loved another: the beautiful Venetia was the mainspring of his life, and on her death he became and remained a widower.
He lived life to the full, and even became a close friend of Cromwell, Royalist though he was.
Pamela Hill tells the fascinating story of a man whose many adventures ensured him great notoriety in his time.
