Producer: Buckingham Covers
Probably the last major battle of the Third English Civil War, which took place on 3rd September 1650. Oliver Cromwell turned defeat into a massive victory and ended any chance that Charles II could win. Featuring a wonderful early picture of the battle, we commemorate the decisive battle of the Third Civil War with this fantastic first day cover.
The signature of Oliver Cromwell has been professionally inserted into our beautiful cover produced in 2010 for the House of Stuart issue. It features a stunning illustration of the 1650 Battle of Dunbar, when Parliamentarian forces led by Cromwell defeated the Royalist Scottish army.
Oliver Cromwell (1599 - 1658) was an English military and political leader who became Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland. Cromwell was an intensely religious man, a Puritan, who before the Civil War served as an MP for Huntingdon and later Cambridge.
During the Civil War he proved his military ability and became one of the main New Model Army Commanders; in 1649 after the Parliamentary victory he signed King Charles I's death warrant.
Cromwell dominated the post war period, first during the Commonwealth of England as a highly influential MP, and later as Lord Protector from 1653 until his death in 1658. He commanded the highly controversial English campaigns in Ireland from 1649 to 1650and Scotland between 1650 and 1651, both of which witnessed the brutal treatment of Roman Catholics.
Cromwell remains one of the most controversial and debated figures in British history; considered a military dictator by some but a beacon of liberty by others.
