The time lines being so skewed would throw me off and spoil my enjoyment. I read 'Mary of Carisbrooke' by MC Barnes and loved it recently, but I'm not sure whether I loved it because I don't know a great deal about King Charles's imprisonment on the Isle of Wight, or because it was accurate
I do want to read the Carisbrooke novel. I've read others of MCB's and the one on Anne of Cleves I thought best of all so far, but this one was just so off. It is possible that the Richard she wrote was how he was commonly pictured back in the 1940's when she wrote it.
