You know what happens to usurpers... (29.35)

Bobby: You know your history, so you know what happens to usurpers. Charles Edward Stuart, for example.

Taylor: Bonnie Prince Charlie. Yes. His troops slaughtered. Him exiled from the kingdom.

Bobby: More like on the run for the rest of his life. And that was one of the more civilized responses. You have to know that anything I do to stop you is warranted.

Taylor: I anticipated that being your reaction. So do what you must. And I'll defend as I have to.

Charles Edward Louis John Casimir Sylvester Severino Maria Stuart (31 December 1720 – 31 January 1788) was the elder son of James Francis Edward Stuart, grandson of James II and VII and after 1766 the Stuart claimant to the throne of Great Britain. During his lifetime, he was also known as "The Young Pretender" or "The Young Chevalier" and in popular memory as "Bonnie Prince Charlie". He is best remembered for his role in the 1745 rising; his defeat at Culloden in April 1746 effectively ended the Stuart cause, and subsequent attempts (such as a planned French invasion in 1759) failed to materialise. His escape from Scotland after the uprising led him to be portrayed as a romantic figure of heroic failure in later representations.
