This paper will look at the influences which dictated Charles II’s clothing choices while he was in exile (1646-1660) and in the first five years of his reign after his restoration to the throne in 1660. In particular, it will focus upon how far his exposure to a range of dress styles during his exile in the United Provinances, the Spanish Netherlands, parts of the Holy Roman Empire and France was reflected in his clothing choices. The paper will be divided into two parts, the first concentrating on his years in exile, the second looking at the first five years of his reign. This paper will draw on written and visual sources as appropriate.
