Sex With Kings

Unread postby Raven » Fri Mar 31, 2006 10:12 pm

Hi Everyone,

I got the book Sex With Kings by Eleanor Herman, after watching the Discovery Channel about Henry VIII.

Of course I was looking for some references to the Earl. I found two. One he is credited with and the other he is not, though I found the that same quote in a few other books about John Wilmot.

This is a good book and very interesting for anyone getting hooked on the restoration as I seem to be doing. And though it covers the 500 years, it still gives you insight into the past through the women of the times.

"In my experience, those who do not like you fall into two categories: the stupid
and the envious."
John Wilmot, the 2nd Earl of Rochester in The Libertine by Stephen Jeffreys

Raven, we are always on the look out for info on the Earl. Thanks! :interesting:
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -
Wow! What a ride!

Thanks for the info Raven. :cool:
You can't judge a book by its cover.

The only thing that matters is the ending. It's the most important part of the story.
