Summary
In January 1649, the King of England, Charles I, was executed. He had been sentenced to death by a tribunal of 135 men and, of those, 59 signed the death warrant. In a powerful tale of revenge from a dark and little-known corner of English history, Charles Spencer explores what happened when the Restoration arrived and retribution was brought against those who condemned the king. From the men who returned to the monarchist cause and betrayed their fellow regicides to those that fled the country in an attempt to escape their punishment, Spencer tells the incredible story of the men who dared to kill a king
Summary
Recounting a little-known corner of British history, Charles Spencer explores what happened when the Restoration arrived. From George Downing, the chief plotter, to Richard Ingoldsby, who claimed he was forced to sign his name by his cousin Oliver Cromwell, and from those who returned to the monarchist cause and betrayed their fellow regicides to those that fled the country in an attempt to escape their punishment, Spencer examines the long-lasting, far-reaching consequences not only for those who signed the warrant, but also for those who were present at the trial and for England itself
