The Trial of Charles I

Never was kingly dignity more apparent than in those last months of imprisonment during which Charles I, defeated and alone, came to accept the inevitability of a martyr’s death. This volume tells the story in the words of men who were there: Sir Thomas Herbert, Groom of the Bedchamber, and John Rushworth, Assistant Clerk to the House of Commons. A detailed picture of Charles’s life in captivity is followed by a day-to-day report or the trial, in which the impersonal nature of the account serves only to throw conflict and tragedy into even sharper relief. After the King’s farewells, when Herbert can no longer bear to watch, Rushworth describes the scene on the scaffold; finally, at Windsor, the ‘Winter King’ is laid to rest.
