King Charles the First was beheaded outside Whitehall on 30th January, 1649, by order of a tribunal set up to try him by about one-eighth of the members of the House of Commons.
The present book relates the story of this so-called trial by printing in full the original "Journal" of the regicides, compiled by a committee with the aid of the regicides' clerks, Phelps and Broughton, and by adding to it details from other sources.
The history of the King before 1649 is largely based upon the journals of the times, and these last authorities supply the bulk of the material for the conclusion of the book, describing the execution of the King.
With a Foreword by the EARL OF BIRKENHEAD
