The Donkey Wheel of Carisbrooke Castle

After King Charles I of England surrendered to Scottish forces following his defeat in the English Civil War (1642–1651), he was captured and imprisoned at the Carisbrooke Castle on the Isle of Wight, where he remained for fourteen months. By the end of 1648, the Parliamentarian New Model Army had consolidated its control over England, and Charles was tried, convicted, and executed for high treason in January 1649. The place of his imprisonment, the Carisbrooke Castle, still stands and is a popular tourist attraction on the isle.
