Charles behaved worse than Berlusconi?

Royal scandal: Charles caught swimming with "friends".
Strollon brings you another royal scandal.

Just like the Italian President, there is no doubt that Charles' reputation rises with each story of his affairs with women of all classes. Will scandal do for Charles what it has done for Berlusconi? We might not always be better than the Italians at football but our royals certainly beat their politicians!

His lovers ranged from shopkeepers to Duchesses seeking the fame and wealth that comes with political scandals. Age took away his sexual drive but in his heyday it was well known amongst the upper classes that if he did not make love at least once a day then he became impossible.

Although Charles has been famous for many things including a style of architecture, he is not known for having the looks of a Hollywood pin-up. We have come across many stories of his affairs - some are proven to be true but others have been fabricated to feed the public's love of famous lovers. One fact is that one of his mistresses called him Charles III because she had had 2 previous lovers also named Charles.

You can hear more about this at the website at www.strollon.co.uk.

You will by now have realised that none of this story involves our present Prince of Wales. This is the real macho behaviour of his ancestor King Charles II who used to swim in St James Park with his mistresses. He was never embarrassed to show off his sexual conquests that included Nell Gwynne who was an actress and orange seller in Covent Garden and is reputed to have bedded the king within a few days of meeting him.

StrollOn’s iPod walks are full of such anecdotes about the scandalous lives of the saints, sinners and strumpets that fill the history of London. Listen to some of them on our website. You can either download our own tours or you can make up your own from more than 200 chapters covering sights throughout major European cities.

Over the next few weeks we will be continuing our stories in our blogs and newsletter. If you have your own stories then please write to us at info@strollon.co.uk so that we can include them on our website.
