    Rupert's overriding interest was the military. In 1633 at the age of 14, he accompanied the Prince of Orange on campaign at the siege of Rhynberg. In 1635, he joined the Prince's lifeguard during the invasion of Brabant. The following year he accompanied his elder brother Charles Louis—now the Elector of the Palatinate—on a visit to England. Rupert made a good impression on his uncle King Charles I, was awarded an honorary MA at Oxford and had his portrait painted by Van Dyck. Rupert returned to military service with the Prince of Orange in 1637 and was present at the siege of Breda. He then joined Charles Louis and an army of Scottish mercenaries led by James King(later Lord Eythin) in an invasion of Westphalia, which was defeated by General Hatzfeld of Austria at the battle of Vlotho in October 1638. James King placed the blame for the defeat on Rupert's impetuosity in charging the enemy. Rupert was taken prisoner at Vlotho and held at Linz Castle in Austria for three years. Resis...

    The outbreak of civil war in England presented Rupert with an opportunity to continue his military career. In August 1642, Rupert and his younger brother Prince Mauricearrived in England accompanied by a staff of English and Scottish veterans from the European wars to fight for King Charles. The Order of the Garter was conferred upon him and he was appointed commander of the King's cavalry. At first Rupert was welcomed as an experienced soldier. His charisma had an inspirational effect on the Royalist cause, but his youthful arrogance and foreign manners soon alienated many of the King's senior advisers, particularly as Rupert was exempted from taking orders from anyone but King Charles himself. Rupert won a reputation as a dashing cavalry commander by routing a Parliamentarian force at Powick Bridge near Worcester soon after the beginning of the war. At the battle of Edgehillin October 1643, Rupert's cavalry charge completely routed the Parliamentarian horse but, carried away by th...

    During the Second Civil War, Rupert accompanied Prince Charles when he took command of a number of warships that had defected from Parliament. The naval campaign was unsuccessful and the Prince's fleet was chased back to Holland by the Earl of Warwick in August 1648. Early in 1649, Rupert and Prince Maurice took command of the eight ships remaining in the Royalist squadron and sailed to southern Ireland with orders to support the Marquis of Ormond. From his base at Kinsale, Rupert ran supplies and reinforcements to the Royalist garrison on the Scilly Isles and preyed upon Commonwealth shipping in the Channel, selling the ships and cargoes he captured and donating the proceeds to the Royalist war-effort. In the summer of 1649, Rupert was driven from Irish waters by the Commonwealth General-at-Sea Robert Blake. He sailed to Portugal, where King John IV promised him protection. Rupert continued to raid English merchantmen until Blake arrived off Portugal in March 1650 and blockaded Rup...

    Rupert returned to England after the Restoration of Charles IIin 1660. Despite their quarrel of 1654, Rupert was warmly received by the King. He was granted an annual pension and appointed to the privy council in 1662, his particular concern being the navy. He also took an interest in overseas commercial ventures, becoming the first governor of the Hudson's Bay Company in 1670. The territory granted to the Company was named "Prince Rupert's Land" in his honour. Continuing his interest in scientific experiments, Rupert became a founder member of the Royal Society. Among other scientific interests, he experimented with the manufacture of gunpowder, the boring of guns and the casting of shot, and invented a modified form of brass known as "prince's metal". During his exile in Europe, he had become skilled in mezzotint engraving, which he is said to have introduced into England. Rupert held naval commands in the Second Anglo-Dutch War of 1665-7. Although wounded at the battle of Lowesto...
