This book explores the relationship between Britain and King Charles XII of Sweeden during one of the most interesting events of his reign: his exile to Bender in the Ottoman Empire and his later involvement with the Jacobite movement. The King's exile inside the territory of the Porte brought about historical and literary reactions, even giving Charles XII the aura of a hero. Later, his involvement with the Jacobite movement made him the antagonist of the day across the British Isles.
