King Charles II.
Great Seal – Obverse – Red.
This is the great seal Of King Charles II of England.
Charles II was the son of Charles I, after the death of Oliver Cromwell and the collapse of the Protectorate Charles was asked to be King of England. The Monarchy was reformed and England ended the short republic state it had with the Cromwell’s. Charles was a popular and well liked King but somewhat of a weak leader in politics and foreign affaires. He had at least 13 mistresses including Nell Gwyn and had many illegitimate children but left no heir to the throne. The great fire of London and the great plaque both occurred during his reign.
This reproduction is the obverse side and has been taken from a copy that would have been produced directly from an original impression in wax. Preserved for hundreds of years this copy shows the fine detail of the original and makes the perfect addition for any collection.
Each monarch of England would have had their own unique great royal seal. These seals were affixed to documentation to show and prove their authentication and validate that they are genuine in the absence of the monarch themselves. Originally these would have been made from wax and held together a document or scroll by a cord passing through the wax seal.
Our reproductions capture all the fine detail of the original wax casting and are moulded and then hand cast in a resin composite to produce a very accurate and high quality reproduction.
