Alice Lisle

The trial of Alice Lisle at the 'Bloody Assizes' of Judge Jeffreys after Monmouth's rebellion of 1685 is one of England's most celebrated miscarriages of justice. This is the only occasion where Edward Rutherfurd incorporates a historical person into a fictional family tree. The story and trial appear in THE FOREST: 'Alice'.
