Painting of James, Duke of Monmouth

Description
Monmouth was the favourite but illegitimate son of Charles II. When his Catholic uncle James II succeeded to the throne, Monmouth became the focus for
Protestant opposition. But his rebel army was no match for the Kingês forces at the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685. Monmouth was beheaded as a traitor soon after the battle.
