    • 1st Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland

      When the English Civil War resulted in the execution of King Charles I, Oliver Cromwell took over as the ruler of the new republican Commonwealth. He is said to have ruled with an iron fist and is remembered as one of the most controversial figures in British history.

      Oliver Cromwell was buried in Westminster Abbey, but after the Royalists returned to power in 1660 they had his corpse dug up, hung in chains, and beheaded.
