I come from a long line of Monarchists.

While a member of the royal court, Frances Stuart, Duchess of Richmond, caught the eye of Charles II. He fell in love with her. He considered the possibility of obtaining a divorce to enable him to make Frances his wife because she had refused to become his mistress.

I find it sad that Charles II had more illegitimate children and yet not one direct legitimate heir of his body. I know he didn't want to divorce his wife, but thing is, that he had over a dozen illegitimate children, but never had one single heir.

As for Frances Stuart, clear game played well by Anne Boleyn. Interestingly, Charles II never did in fact choose to leave his wife for Frances. I think Charles was still snobbish about bloodlines and would have preferred a royal wife that brought a good bloodline and substantial dowry.
