King Charles' Maddest Moments

King Charles II of England, known for his hedonistic lifestyle and numerous mistresses, had his fair share of mad moments. In one notable incident, he had a pet spaniel named Rollo who became a court favorite. When Rollo died, the king ordered a state funeral for the dog, complete with a procession, mourners, and a gravestone that read: "Here lies Rollo, a faithful friend to his master, King Charles II." The king's obsession with his dog and the lavish funeral he arranged for it were seen as excessive and eccentric, even for the flamboyant court of the Restoration era.
