De Koning door toedoen van Monk tot Londen ge Proclameert.
Etching. 90 x 115mm. 3½ x 4½".
George Monck used this time wisely as Governor of Scotland to readdress the state of the British Isles. Concerned that the nation would descend into anarchy, he and his army marched into the City of London and forced the Rump Parliament to re-admit members of the Long Parliament who served under Charles II. Monck's efforts contriubuted to the restoration of Charles as monarch. Charles II arrived in London on his 30th Birthday, 29th May 1660. Anonymous engraving probably Dutch from a Broadside that would have small engravings arranged in rows or alternatively around one central etching.
