Other Jacobite Essays and Resources

The essays and other resources presented here show the breadth of Jacobitism. This breadth has been the greatest virtue of Jacobitism as well as the chief cause of its failure to effect a restoration.

The Jacobites have always suffered from disunity. They come from a variety of religious backgrounds, including Catholic, Church of England, Church of Scotland, and Quaker. The English Jacobites have always been very separate from the Scottish Jacobites, and the small number of Welsh and Irish Jacobites have been entities unto themselves.

The Jacobites of today are at least as varied as their predecessors. There are those fervent individuals who believe strongly in the legitimate rights of Duke Francis of Bavaria and acknowledge him as their rightful king. Then there are those who are firmly attached to the principles of legitimism and yet, in practical terms, are loyal to the House of Windsor. There are those people who take a purely historical interest in the movement, and others who are devoted to the memory of its most romantic hero, Bonnie Prince Charlie.
