Oliver Cromwell ruled England from 1653 until his death in 1658, as Lord
Protector after the English Civil War and the execution of Charles I in
1649. In 1660, Charles II returned from exile and was crowned king. Charles
II ordered that those who had brought about the execution of his father
including those who had died before his restoration were to be dug up so
their bodies could be hung up in chains, and beheaded. Cromwell had been
dead for over two years before he was formally executed in 1661.
