Tales of my landlord.

The Bride of Lammermoor is set against the tempestuous backdrop of the Glorious or Bloodless Revolution of 1688-9; it recounts the tale of the Ravenswood family, which chose to remain loyal to the Stuart cause when England's last Stuart king, James II, was deposed in favour of his Protestant son-in-law, William of Orange. Deprived of his title for his part in the Civil War and of his East Lothian estates by the devious Whig lawyer Sir William Ashton, the surviving son inherits his father's hatred of the upstart trickster Ashton whom he holds responsible for his father's dieing of a fit.
