Transcript of The Loyalty to Royalty: A Project by Neil G R Condit

The following contextual information has been drawn from the textbook:
The Norton Anthology: English Literature, Vol. B.

But before we begin looking at the pamphlet, let's let the Chaps over at Horrible Histories give us some contextual info on the English Civil War conflict...
My God that's funny!

Let's take a look at the pamphlet now. It recounts the last days of Charles the I and the possible reaction from a Royalist perspective...
Merriam-Webster defines
"Imprimatur" as:

A license to print or publish
especially by Roman Catholic episcopal authority.
Although I have chosen to
provide my own name,
news pamphlets of the
Civil War era were often
published anonymously--
though The Norton Anthology
reminds us that the identity
may have been an "open
secret" (1835).
The design of this page is
modeled after the exam-
ples from ABC.net.au
Charles was actually
beheaded in 1649, but
England, during this era,
recognized the beginning
of a year to happen on
Mar. 25th, not Jan. 1st.
-this is the reason for the
date discrepancy.
This page serves as both
a eulogy to Charles and
a ridicule of those who
conspired against him. It
is an attempt to rally
sympathy for the King
and anger against the
Whig party.

The text is modeled after
a printed statement by
the French King,
Louis XIV. (the article,
however, says Louis XIII--
which is impossible
because he had died
some years earlier).

Direct quotations are
underlined in RED
Quoted material
is directly taken
from The Moderate
No. 28.

The rest of the text
is a paraphrasing of the
same article.

The paraphrasing is
worded with an
intention of portraying
Charles as the only
person in the courtroom
with a just argument.
valid reasoning for those loyal to
the Crown. This is to display the
illegal nature of the King's trial.
A summary of the
King's statements,
intended to
provide support
to the Royalists'
A Catholic prayer is used here to show how Charles' marriage to Henrietta Maria, a French Catholic, influenced the common perception of his religious beliefs. Charles was believed by some to be a 'secret Catholic.'
Protestant England used this conspiracy against him.
A paraphrasing of
A Perfect Diurnal No.

The text emphasizes
Charles' position as a
man of the people and
a man of God.

The title says it all.
The text solidifies
Charles as a good
and Christian King
who is being murdered
by a corrupted
political action.
The photo shows
Charles as a King
with Divine rights.
A Christian King
whose power is
ordained by God.
This text is modeled
the royal sympath-
izer Robert Filmer.
It implements his
argument about the
Divine right of kings
and seeks to re-instill
Sovereignty as the
beloved doctrine of

I love those guys!

The backing musical track is
"A Mad World My Masters" by Strawhead
And because they're amazing, here once
again is Horrible Histories to explain the aftermath
of Charles' execution...
