Prince Rupert, England's Wolfe With Eagle Claws


Puritan propaganda at its finest. A bloody handed Cavalier is portrayed as a wolf with Eagles claws. Firing up the Parliamentarian war machine against the unholy murdering royalist monsters.

"The cruell impieties of blood-thirsty royalists and blasphemous anti-parliamentarians under the command of that inhumane Prince Rupert, Digby and the rest, wherein the barbarous crueltie of our civill uncivill warres is briefy discovered"

That is wonderfully funny. I love the original one looks more like a rabbits head than a wolf.

Now that would make a great range of miniatures - ECW animagus! Loved the woodcut as well, would definitely love to see more of those.

Oh, isn't that just brilliant. Seventeenth Century propaganda and atrocity literature at its best. Marvellous!
