The Merry Monarch, King Charles II, is the subject of this remarkably rare miniature portrait. The legendary king is remembered as one of England's most popular and interesting monarchs, having taken the throne following the death of Oliver Cromwell and the subsequent dissolution of English Commonwealth. The nation's experimentation with republicanism had failed, and the British people welcomed their tall and handsome king back with open arms.

As a monarch, Charles II was for more successful than his father, even with the ascendancy of Parliament and party politics during his reign. Though limited in scope, the monarchy was effectively restored, and his reign ushered in a time of peace and prosperity remembered as "Merry Olde England." This exceptional miniature captures the king as a relatively young man, perhaps in the few years after he took the throne on his 30th birthday.

Circa 1665
