  Henry Marten (regicide) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In parliament he spoke often and with effect, but he took no part in public life during the Protectorate, passing part of this time in prison, where he was placed on account of his debts.
Having sat among the restored members of the Long Parliament in 1659, Marten surrendered himself to the authorities as a regicide in June 1660, and with some others he was excepted from the Indemnity and Oblivion Act, but with a saving clause.
He behaved courageously at his trial, which took place in October 1660, but he was found guilty of taking part in the king's death.

Regicide is the rarest of all crimes, rarer than mutiny, piracy, treason and arson in her Majesty's shipyards, the last offences to carry the death penalty in Britain.
Some of the regicides - those who signed the death warrant - were executed after the Restoration, but the king's death marked a turning point, the end of the doctrine of divine right.
The trial of the Ethiopian regicides, which I attended when it opened in 1994, continues today in Addis Ababa; it is perhaps the last there will ever be.

On the part of the Regicides these declarations could not be entirely passed by without notice: but in that notice they discovered still more clearly the bottom of their character.

 Burke: Select Works of Edmund Burke, Vol. 3, Letters on a Regicide Peace, Front Matter: Library of Economics and Liberty
None but regicide sympathizers could really desire a regicide peace: the rest of the nation, if once roused to a full consideration of the question, and to a sense of its enormous moment, must be in favour of maintaining the war.
The Third Letter on a Regicide Peace was prepared for the press by the former; the Fourth, by the latter.
He was for executing a stern vengeance on the regicides who had sat in the Convention: on those who had composed the Revolutionary Tribunal: on those who should be proved to have taken a leading part in acts of sacrilege: on all the leaders of the Jacobin Clubs.

 ‘Records Are Remorseless As Regards Theory’
Undoubtedly the Edward Wale of Maryland was of the family of Edward Whalley, the regicide, and most probably he was his son (as has already been suggested...).
The fault, then, of the Robins Narrative would be that of confusing two generations, of losing sight of the father in 1664, and of confusing him with the son in 1678; a not unnatural mistake after the lapse of a century.
It would be safer to say that Edward Wale, of Maryland, was a near relative, presumably a son of the Regicide, and that we know nothing certainly of the latter after the date of Goffe’s letter in 1674.

Of course, to the Nepalese, who regard their kings as incarnations of the Hindu god Vishnu, regicide is the ultimate transgression.
And when the killer of the king is the king's own son--raised, and deified already, as an avatar-in-waiting--the violation of the natural order is so immense as to call to mind a Himalayan version of "King Lear"--save that here, in taking his own life, Dipendra revealed a tragic fragility behind his murderous intent.

 Jesuits and Regicide
Truly regicide could not be taught by clearer words, and the Parliament of Paris was so horrified thereat, that it caused the book to be at once burned by the hand of the executioner, on the 16th of June 1614.
Lastly, in the middle of the cupola is to be seen the Holy Ignatius, surrounded by a halo of glory, and launching great pillars of fire on all the four quarters of the globe, as if desirous of putting all lands of the earth in flames.

 Charles I
One may argue that this inconceivable act, the execution of the legal sovereign, was merely the result of the convulsions of the Civil War, that nobody really desired the death of the king and that his execution can be included among those "moments of madness" that seem to characterise every revolutionary moment.
It is however doubtful that the regicides acted on a momentary impulse and that they didn’t realise the implications of their action.
The appearance of legality for which the regicides strove hardly could not, in any of these cases, change the profoundly illegal character of their act.

Besides that, I do not think that Regicide is a classical metal band, but it is not classical rock band either.
But some parts of our music could make it a little harder for Regicide to become mainstream, because some of the songs are nearly conceptional and not as easy to listen to.
As already mentioned, in the beginning Regicide was just a studio project, where we recorded a CD called “Travelling Minds”.

Nineteenth-century historians considered it an alarming miscalculation, a symbol of the Terror and the moral bankruptcy of the Revolution.
She examines how thinkers on the right and left repudiated regicide and terror, while articulating a compassionate, humanitarian vision, which became the moral basis for the modern French nation.
Their credo of fraternity and unity, however, strangely depoliticized this supremely political act of regicide.

Nothing remains but the clear vision, the unimpaired judgment, the stern penetration which fact and reason alone survive, and the large conception which appears, to any other mind becoming for the first time familiar with it, almost a revelation.
Utterly wrong were those contemporary critics, chiefly among the Foxite Whigs, who saw in the “Reflections” the beginnings of a distorted view of things which in the “Regicide Peace” letters culminated and amounted to lunacy.

 Regicide at Marseille
A survey of the background of the Marseille regicide, a composite of crime and heroism, leaves no doubt as to the inability of the Peace-Makers to create stable conditions in the Balkans, conducive to lasting peace.
Due to collusion between Laval and the Little Entente, Hungary was persecuted, not because of the Marseille regicide, of which she was not guilty, but because of her policy - admittedly aimed at the revision of the Trianon Treaty - which policy, according to the Covenant, she was fully entitled to pursue.
One month later, when the Marseille regicide came up in the League, his subservience to French policy made him completely forget the good start we had made toward a better Danubian understanding.

In a single evening Dipendra committed regicide, deicide, patricide, matricide, fratricide, multiple-homicide and suicide -- an atrocity worthy of the Vedas.
