Charles remained at St James's throughout the 29th and did not hear the sounds of the scaffold being erected outside the Banqueting Hall in Whitehall. He knew nothing of the difficulties his accusers were having in obtaining signatures for the death warrant. He no longer felt the loneliness of the last months. He burned some papers, he sent his dogs away, he refused to see his closest friends; only Herbert and Juxon stayed near him. He sent Herbert on a few errands. He received a messenger from his eldest son with a note craving his father's blessing. He was allowed a visit from Elizabeth and Henry, who had been staying at Sion House. They burst into tears at the sight of their father. Charles told Elizabeth he was about to die for the laws and liberties of the land and the true Protestant religion, he begged her not to grieve and to tell her mother that his thoughts had never strayed from her and that his love would be the same to the last. Little Henry, who was only nine, he took on his knee. 'Sweetheart,' he said, 'now they will cut off thy father's head . . . and perhaps make thee a king.' But he charged the boy never to accept the throne while his elder brother lived and never to accept it from the hands of their enemies. 'I will sooner be torn in pieces first!' cried the little boy. Charles then divided the few jewels he had between the children and retired to prayer (с) Pauline Gregg "King Charles I"

У меня она такие всегда рыдательно-умиленные чуйства вызывает... как, впрочем, и все картины взглядов на 17 век из 19-го ))) Но в музее она очень выгодно смотрелась.

Да, если подумать, сцена была не из веселых. В принципе... :-)

Эту картину вчера как раз видела на выставке Лики истории в Пушкинском музее.
Можно возьму иллюстрацию для своего отчета?

Хотя нет - тут неполный вариант. В музее справа ещё злобный пуританин стоял

А неплохо... Даже хорошо.... Карлоприме твердая четверка с плюсом. У меня тоже шыдевра есть. Изображенные на ней герои, правда, затоптали бы автора. Называется, кажется, "Мильтон диктует дочерям "Потерянный рай"... Мило, да? Круче бы было только "Генриетта Мария слушает проповедь Хью Питерса".
