Royal Oak of Britannia
Originally produced in 1649 but published in a book at the time of Charles II’s restoration in 1660, this picture attacks Cromwell for dismantling the regime of Charles I. Cromwell is shown ordering republican soldiers to chop down the royal oak, the symbol of the monarchy; the royal crown, sceptre and coat of arms can be seen in the tree. It was originally entitled Inspiratio Diabolica.
