For Bristol Radical History Week 2008 we turn our attention to three connected themes which have sent shivers down the spines of our rulers whether monarchs or ministers for a millennium…Regicide, Republicanism and Political Assassination. As the first people in modern times to have both created a Republic (hussar!) and tried and executed a traitorous king we have both an interesting and progressive history to explore. Starting with this momentous moment, The English Revolution, we will chart some of the radical currents that drove a dispute over the division of political power into a full blown revolutionary war where the people’s army often dictated the terms of the new Republic and decided to challenge the God’s by seizing the King and putting him on trial for war crimes.

With the torch of political freedom lit by the short lived but influential Republic (after all things are never the same again after you’ve carried out your first regicide!) we march onto the birth of modern Republicanism in the flames of the American and French Revolutions of the late 18th Century. It has always intrigued us why no one seems to know in England who Thomas Paine is or what he proposed. In the late 18th Century the man’s name was on everyone’s lips, whether frightened monarch, angry cobbler or mutinous sailor. We shall be looking at the debates that broke out in the fledgling English republican movement between old style ‘Norman Yokists’ , looking back to a mythical past and those who grasped the new enlightened ideas from the colonial upstarts and French revolutionaries. We will consider how the ideas of Paine and the French and American democratic models frightened our rulers and both inspired and divided the English Republicans as they stumbled down the insurrectionary path.
