Cavalier: The Story of a 17th Century Playboy by Lucy Worsley

"William Cavendish, courageous, cultured and passionate about women, embodies the popular image of a cavalier. Famously defeated at the Battle of Marston Moor in 1644, he went into a long and miserable continental exile before returning to England in triumph on the restoration of King Charles II to the throne in 1660."

On his return to England, William retired from public life, and instead focussed on his estate. He is best known for his passion for horsemanship and was regarded as the finest horseman in Europe. He occupied himself with his favourite pursuit of training horses and established a five-mile racecourse near Welbeck.
