WALK IN ROYAL FOOTSTEPS
You can continue to trace the footsteps of Charles I and II throughout Worcester where supporters of King Charles I, and his son, later Charles II, during the Civil Wars that raged between Parliamentarians (Roundheads) and Royalists (Cavaliers) throughout the country between 1642 and 1651. On his way from Scotland to London, where he hoped to take the throne, he believed was rightfully his, King Charles II arrived in Worcester. He decided to make his stand following the news that Oliver Cromwell’s Parliamentarian’s army was quickly advancing.
The Fort Royal, which stood on the hill behind The Commandery in Worcester, became one of the King’s first lines of defence, and The Commandery itself was chosen as one of the headquarters for the Royalist army. Unfortunately for Charles, it was the Battle of Worcester that proved to be the end of Royalist hopes, changing the governance of England forever.
