The year 1992 marked the 350th anniversary of the beginning of the English Civil War and to commemorate this important segment in British history a series of exhibitions and events took place. The war was fought between Royalists beholden to King Charles I and Parliamentarians loyal to the Parliament over the course that the British government should take. The Parliamentarian forces believed that no monarch should be able to govern without consent of the governed but Royalist forces contended that absolute power be wielded by the monarchy. The war was long and bloody with an estimated 1 in 20 Englishmen losing their lives to the conflict. It came to a close on September 3, 1651 after a victory by Parliamentarian forces at the Battle of Worcester led to a decisive victory.
