I remember this story! He stole the Crown Jewels then was pardoned by the King and given his own estate in Ireland! It's been a long time, but I still remember that.

Wonderful illustration. :D

Haha, one of those better moments of History. Charles II truly was a great King. ^^

Just ask his platoon of mistresses, they could tell you stories...
