About the Author:

Stanley John Weyman (1855 - 1928) was an English novelist sometimes referred to as the "Prince of Romance". He traveled widely with another bestselling novelist, Henry Seton Merriman. While for years his historical romances enchanted thousands of readers - Robert Louis Stevenson and Oscar Wilde were among the enthusiasts - today his books are largely neglected.
