How to get kids into history

I have a very different view of Charles II than the party animal presented in this clip from BBC 'Horrible Histories' - but it's a series my three weans never miss. A bit of imagination can go a long way when telling stories. Nearly 2.5 million views on YouTube between these three videos. So now the weans are asking me questions about Charles II - which gives me an opportunity to get the real story across.
