In England, around the same time, duels between armies took precedence over personal disagreements. Here one of Cromwell’s “Ironsides” fights it out with a dismounted Royalist cavalier. - See more at: http://www.kingandcountry.com/english-civil-duellists-p-10502.html#sthash.tTCPPG2N.dpuf
Henry Tillier’s Regt. Of Foote Drummer
Henry Tillier was of a French Huguemont family and an officer in Charles I's army when it fought in Ireland in 1642. In 1643 he was promoted Colonel and raised his own regiment from the Dublin garrison which crossed over to England in 1644 on the King’s side. Their green coats marked them out as proud Irishmen ... as is our drummer.
The Witchfinder General
Mathew Hopkins was a self-appointed witch-hunter whose career flourished during the major upheavals caused by the English Civil War. Although never officially sanctioned by Parliament, he prowled far and wide across East Anglia conducting investigations, trials and executions from 1644-1647. More than 300 unfortunate people, mostly women, fell victim to his deadly inquisitions with more being hanged and burned than in all of the previous 100 years! Our figure shows him in Parliamentary garb and wearing a black cloak and hat and carrying both a volume of Parish records ... and a sword. He was memorably played by legendary horror film villain, Vincent Price in “Witchfinder General”, a 1968 British horror movie.
