Drogheda

Cromwell's famous siege and massacre of Drogheda has often been misunderstood and misrepresented. Based on the best recent historical writing, Rutherfurd gives a historically balanced and blow-by-blow account of the drama and tragedy of that day, in the 'Drogheda' chapter of his second Irish book.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
Only one man was allowed to live in the royal palace of China, known as the Forbidden City: the emperor. All the other inhabitants were either women - wives, concubines or servants - or the famous palace eunuchs. Nearly all eunuchs were castrated when they were still only boys. But there were just a few who chose to be castrated after they became men, and even had children of their own. They did it for the money.
