Excerpt from Charles II and His Court

This baby was Charles, Prince of Wales, born 29 May, 1630; his mother is describing him in a letter to her old governess, Mme. De Motteville. His birth was greeted by innumerable poems, most of them containing some allusion to the star which had been visible as Charles I rode to St. Paul's to give thanks for the Queen's delivery.2 From this omen most men presaged that that prince should be of high undertakings and of no common glory among kings. If he had spoken of this later in life, Charles II might well have anticipated the words of Pope's Achilles, Portents and prodigies are lost on me! If, however, the star was, as Lilly the astrologer declared, the planet Venus, its appearance was certainly appropriate enough.
