Should he no' come back again.

Death itself were dearly bought,
A' for Scotland's king and law.

Charles Edward Stuart "Bonnie Prince Charlie" or
the Young Pretender, was the last Stuart claimant to the British
throne. He led the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, which ended at
the Battle of Culloden.

with the help of Flora MacDonald. He wandered around Europe for
a few years but was never able to further his cause.
