ABSTRACT
To Catch A King Charles Spencer William Collins £20 The year is 1651 and the future Charles II, still a boy of 21, is on the run. At the recent Battle of Worcester his raggle-taggle Royalist followers have been butchered by Oliver Cromwell and the welldrilled Parliamentarian army. Now England's status as a republic is secure and Cromwell himself is well on the way to becoming Lord Protector. Charles Stuart, to give him his legal name, needs to scarper to the Continent if he is to have any hope of avoiding the fate of his father, King Charles I, executed just two years earlier.
