Supernatural aspects of the Monmouth Rebellion
There does seem to be rather a lot of strange tales for the Rising of 1685. This card is one of my favourite images but I can find no further explanation to the picture. As it was the time when people still expected to be cured from Scrofula by the touch of the King I suppose it is no wonder there are many tales that might be labelled superstitious.
