Rose Tartan & Clan

There are some who believe that the character of the Scarlet Pimpernel was based, in part at least, on a Scotsman named J. A. Rose who was born in 1757. As a young man, Rose moved to Paris where he would grow into a very distinguished person, rubbing shoulders with King Louis and Marie-Antoinette who he would try to save from Madame Guillotine.
