Here is (my late) entry from Theodore's, Royal World Blog.

Charles I

Three hundred and sixty years ago today the English Puritans dared to murder their anointed King.
Kings had of course been killed before, but never so openly and never with the claim of "legality".

The American Society of King Charles the Martyr will hold its annual mass and meeting tomorrow at S. Stephen's Church in Providence, Rhode Island. The British SKCM of course commemorates the anniversary annually as well.

In this excerpt from Cromwell, Alec Guinness movingly portrays the King's final moments.

On the 131st anniversary (1780), as Americans were engaged in another rebellion against another King, the heroic loyalist Rev. Charles Inglis, rector of Trinity Wall Street, preached this sermon on "The Duty of Honouring the King." Other materials related to King Charles the Martyr can be found here.

God Save the King!

It always strikes me that these kings that get murdered are very brave about meeting their fate... Don't you agree?

Yes, that is true, and one other thing, both he and Louis XVI both adored their wives. When Satan attacks the Church he firsts attacks marriage.

Good point. Well, marriage is definitely something under massive attack these days.
