Description: In the critically acclaimed tradition of Napoleon and Catherine the Great, A&E and the BBC bring to life one of history's most compelling figures-Great Britain's King Charles II. Bursting with romance and court intrigue amidst the lavish backdrop of the Restoration Period, THE LAST KING is a star-studded tale of passion, politics and power.
A raucous gambler known as the Merry Monarch, Charles II was a probable sex addict, an impassioned lover of the arts, a ruthless political survivor, and the ruler who swept England into a new era of modernism and democracy during the 17th century. In a story almost too action-filled and entertaining to be true, THE LAST KING captures the dramatic, lust-filled saga of King Charles II-from his youthful exile in the Netherlands to his tumultuous 25-year reign ending in a secret deathbed conversion to Catholicism.
Featuring Rufus Sewell (A Knight's Tale, Helen of Troy, Dark City), Rupert Graves (The Madness of King George, A Room with a View), and Diana Rigg (Victoria & Albert, The Avengers), this is a must-see original A&E movie presentation available on DVD for the first time.
