KING CHARLES II [29 MAY 1630 - 6 FEBRUARY 1685] WAS MONARCH OF THE THREE KINGDOMS OF ENGLAND, SCOTLAND, AND IRELAND.
A Proper Memorial For the 29th of May, The Glorious Day which blessed these Nations with the Return of King Charles the IId, their Rightful Monarch. Being an Historical Account of his wonderful escape, after the Battle of Worcester, from the hot pursuit of those inhuman rebels, who, having drank his father's blood, thirsted after his. As also of the following Usurpations, and the Glorious and Happy Restoration of the Royal Family Containing Many remarkable particulars and circumstances of those Great Providence's not mentioned by the Earl of Clarenden, or any other Historian; and showing, that no one dissenter of fanatick had the least hand in the first of them. A Relation fit to be imprinted in the Hearts of all true Loyalists, and kept in their Houses for the information of their Children, to shew them how miraculously God protected his Anointed, in order to bless there Kingdoms with his Restoration.
Printed for A. Bettesworth, who is removed from London Bridge to the Red Lyon at Pater-Noster Row and sold by C. King Westminster Hall 1715. London 1715. Modern marble paper covered boards, blue cloth spine with paper title label. 8vo 7½'' x 5''. Containing 79 pages of text with embellished capital letter, header and tail-piece. Newspaper cuttings from The Times pasted to the rear paste downs, cracking between the title page and the first page of text, the paper is not foxed and has only marginal age toning to the edges. Charles II's father, King Charles I, was executed at Whitehall on 30 January 1649, at the climax of the English Civil War. Although the Parliament of Scotland proclaimed Charles II King of Great Britain and Ireland in Edinburgh on 6 February 1649, the English Parliament instead passed a statute that made any such proclamation unlawful. England entered the period known as the English Interregnum or the English Commonwealth, and the country was a de facto republic, led by Oliver Cromwell. Cromwell defeated Charles II at the Battle of Worcester on 3 September 1651, and Charles fled to mainland Europe. Cromwell became virtual dictator of England, Scotland and Ireland, and Charles spent the next nine years in exile in France, the United Provinces and the Spanish Netherlands. A political crisis that followed the death of Cromwell in 1658 resulted in the restoration of the monarchy, and Charles was invited to return to Britain. On 29th May 1660, his 30th birthday, he was received in London to public acclaim. After 1660, all legal documents were dated as if he had succeeded his father as king in 1649. Charles II was popularly known as the Merry Monarch, in reference to both the liveliness and hedonism of his court and the general relief at the return to normality after over a decade of rule by Oliver Cromwell and the Puritans. Charles's wife, Catherine of Braganza, bore no live children, but Charles acknowledged at least twelve illegitimate children by various mistresses. As illegitimate children were excluded from the succession, he was succeeded by his brother James.
