Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0948695587, Paperback)

'Almost three hundred and fifty years ago on a cold January afternoon, Charles Stuart, King of England, Scotland, Ireland and France stepped through a window of the Banqueting House in Whitehall onto a scaffold erected in the street. In front of a silent crowd, he was executed by the severing of his head from his body'. This is the fascinating story of the last days of Charles I, reconstructed in vivid detail. The author has not only examined contemporary accounts. He also discusses medical evidence from the king's body, unearthed when nineteenth century workmen accidentally broke through the unmarked vault in St George's Chapel, Windsor, where the monarch was buried. Written by a leading member of the world's largest historical reenactment society, 'The Sealed Knot', this is a book which will appeal to anyone interested in the most troubled time in English history.
