Portrait, in oval of Oliver Cromwell (1599 - 1658), one of the commanders of the New Model Army which defeated the royalists in the English Civil War. Until 1640, Cromwell played only a small role in local administration and no significant role in national politics. However, it was the civil wars of the 1640s which lifted him from obscurity to power. Cromwell was one of the signatories of King Charles I's death warrant in 1649, and, as a member of the Rump Parliament, he dominated the short-lived Commonwealth of England. Eventually, in December 1653, he became head of state as Lord Protector, serving for almost five years, until his death on 3 September 1658.
