Staycation Day 1: a brilliant day yesterday exploring Westminster. First stop the busy @westminsterabbeylondon - brilliant seeing Poets’ Corner! Then over to #westminstercathedral to go up to the viewing platform and see some lovely London skylines. Tottered over to @banquetinghouse for a lovely sit down and particularly enjoyed hearing about the execution of Charles I (that makes me sound grim doesn’t it?) then over to the #voiceandvote exhibition at the @housesofparliamentbdx - got to read about some of my favourite people from the suffrage movement which was an absolute treat! . . . . #westminsterabbey #poetscorner #banquetinghouse #charlesi #vote100 #housesofparliament #suffragette #suffragist #exhibition #history #london #touring #staycation
Artemisia Gentileschi ‘Self Portrait as the Allegory of Painting’ 1638 this #selfportrait and #allegory of #painting #artemisia painted some 20 years later then the one in the previous post  and probably done during her stay in #england. It was in the #collection of #charlesi recently  shown in the #exhibition on him @royalacademyarts and still owned by  @royal_collection_trust. It is a testament to the #confidence and #status of the #artist to show herself as #allegoryofpainting  described by #cesareripa in his #iconologia wearing a #goldchain with a #mask. She is the rare #exception of a #womanartist to break the confines of her to time to become a #successful and #celebrated #femaleartist.
Anthony van Dyck was an extremely successful portraitist and painter of religious and mythological pictures in Antwerp and Italy. He was also an accomplished draughtsman and etcher. However, he is now best remembered for his elegant representations of Charles I and his court.  Van Dyck's 'Equestrian Portrait of Charles I' probably dates from the later years of his English period, about 1637, not long before the outbreak of the Civil War which led to the king's execution in 1649.  Our picture shows Charles I wearing the medallion of a Garter Sovereign, riding as if at the head of his knights. He is dressed in armour and holding a commander's baton. The magnificent horse, and the subdued but rich colours of the saddlecloth, landscape and the page holding the helmet complement the elegance of the rider.

I wonder how much fresh water St John's wastes keeping those lawns so green..... Throwback to open days a couple of weeks ago, because Canterbury quad (certified sjc's most instagrammed quad) is far more aesthetic than anything I've stumbled across since leaving oxford #waterwaste #summer #keepoffthegrass #access #opendays #sjc #uni #student #oxford #oxforduni #charlesi #war #civilwar #notsocivil #cannonball #inthelibrary #tourfacts #guidedtour #grass #quad
🏰 Step inside the heart of @hurstcastleuk to its #tudorfort, which retains much of its original 16th-century appearance. Follow the steps to the first floor of the Tudor keep where it was probably here that #charlesi was kept prisoner in 1648.

Since I’m watching the England semi final World Cup game. It’s only fitting to go with the capital city of my country and that is LONDON!  You could have guessed I’d choose Buckingham Palace as my attraction for London. I remember as a kid (well a brownie) going on a typically rainy English day to London as part of a trip and the only thing I remember was going INSIDE the gates of Buckingham Palace. Nope we didn’t get to go inside the palace, we just got to sit in our coach inside the gates. It bothered me at the time because I wanted to run into the house and explore.  I think we all know that near famous photo of The now Duchess of Sussex sitting on a railing outside of Buckingham Palace and I can tell you hand on heart I wish that were me! I know, who would want to introduce clumsy old me into the royal family but a girl can dream!  So here is a little history:  On the site that Buckingham Palace stands was Buckingham House, the site itself dates back to the reign of James I.  Charles I handed the then gardens to Lord Aston is 1628, this is the first time that there are records to show a house on the site.  In 1698 it was let to John Sheffield who later became Duke of Buckingham, giving it the name we still use today. He found the house out dated and so he demolished the house and built a new Buckingham house. In 1761 George III took the site on for his wife and children and further work was completed. It was George IV who turned it into a palace, although renovations had not finished before he died.  Queen Victoria was the first royal to live in and rule from Buckingham Palace. She requested further development be carried out on Buckingham Palace to improve it for entertaining and accommodating guests.  The Kings and Queens following Queen Victoria have each played their part in putting their own touches on Buckingham Palace.  Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh love in private apartments at Buckingham Palace on the north side of the palace
Charles I Rose Farthing, 1636-1644. Found by eye on the River Thames foreshore, London. . Coins minted at the behest of Charles I ceased with his execution in 1649.  This followed his defeat at the hands of forces loyal to Parliament in the English Civil War, 1642-1645.  The conflict erupted because he was seen to be undermining the authority of Parliament through raising taxes without consent and was was viewed with suspicion by Protestants who saw his support for 'high' Anglicanism, lack of involvement in the Thirty Years War and choice of wife, as evidence of Catholic sympathies. . He was eventually replaced by a Republic known as the Commonwealth.  Although this was short lived, the restoration of the monarchy that followed involved limiting monarchical power and helped set the path towards today's parliamentary democracy.  This helped insulate Britain from the revolutions that would rock Europe from the late 18th Century to the mid-20th. . #coincollecting #coin #numismatics. #mudlarking #museumoflondon #archaeology #metaldetectingfinds #metaldetecting #hammeredcoin  #charlesi #charlesfirst #riverfinds #foundobject  #history #treasurehunting #treasure #history  #charlesi  #mudlark #londonmudlark #history #parliament #civilwar #beheading #execution #monarchy

10th July – A Document Signed (D.S.) by Charles II (1630-1685) King of England, Scotland & Ireland 1660-85. Following the execution of his father, King Charles I, at Whitehall in 1649, at the climax of the English Civil War, and the defeat inflicted by Oliver Cromwell on King Charles II at the Battle of Worcester in 1651, the monarch fled to mainland Europe and Cromwell became a virtual dictator over England, Scotland and Ireland for the next nine years. The restoration of the monarchy followed Cromwell’s death and on his 30th birthday, 29th May 1660, King Charles II was received in London to public acclaim. After this time all legal documents were dated as if Charles had succeeded his father as King in 1649. - - -. This manuscript document was signed by King Charles II at the Court of Whitehall, London, on 10th July 1666. The document relates to Sir John Gordoun [Gordon] of Park and is a warrant ordering 'his Fyne to be suspended and discharged'. - - - Sir John Gordoun (1631-1713) 3rd Laird of Park and Cluny. - - - The King signed the document less than two months before the Great Fire of London in September 1666. The fire swept through the medieval City of London and threatened, but did not reach, the district of Westminster and King Charles II's palace of Whitehall, from where the present document was signed. - - - #signedonthisday #otd #july #history #kingcharles #charlesi #charlesii #cromwell #civilwar #greatfireoflondon #whitehall #england #monarchy #royalty - - - #autograph #auction #iaa #nottingham #famous #signature #rare #collector #vintage #letter #autographexpert #expert #autographcollection #ownapieceofhistory #picoftheday #nostalgia
