Excerpt from A Recital in Song, Story and Dance of the Old Scotch Romance of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora Macdonald
A few weeks after his return from the army and while he was perhaps fifteen years of age, his mother died. He afterwards toured the principal Italian cities ... where he was received in great Splendor, most fitting the fashion of royalty.
One of the results of this Italian tour was to impress the mind of Charles with the reality of his unhappy position.
His thoughts winged their ¿ight to Scotland, that country which he had never seen and over which his forefathers had reigned. His father was a King with out a throne and an exile without a country, and he himself, an heir apparent, with nothing to inherit. He had seen service for the 'cause of another in the Spanish army, would he not draw the sword in defense of his own? Let the hour come, and he would not fail his friends - only let the hour come!
