Parliament - Charles II Wanted Poster

A ‘wanted’ poster issued by Oliver Cromwell offering a reward for Charles II’s capture

The item, dubbed the ‘most famous wanted posted in the world’, was issued on Wednesday September 10, 1651, after the defeat of the King’s forces at the hands of Cromwell’s New Model Army in the Battle of Worcester a week earlier.
