When churls rebel against their native prince,
I arm their hands, and furnish the pretence;
And housing in the lion's hateful sign,
Bought senates and deserting troops are mine.

Yeah, he wrote Raj Quartet which I read and loved after seeing the amazing BBC adaptation, so I had to find out everything I could about it. I have his letters, LOL. When I fall I am a completist.

They are really really good. He is quite good at women characters -- there's two, Sarah and Barbara, who are just amazing and my favourites in the books.
