Oliver Cromwell as Lord Protector is frequently described as being "King in all but name", but there is rarely a detailed explanation of exactly what this means. This book aims to correct that omission by demonstrating precisely in what way Cromwell's rule constituted a monarchical regime in the generally accepted sense of the term, that of a crowned head. The progressive restoration of regal institutions and practices, Cromwell's assumption of the prerogatives of a King, and the rising tide of royal pomp and pageantry are traced. Extensive use is made of illustrations from contemporary printed sources, many reproduced for the first time.
