The country is in shock and divided as Oliver Cromwell puts the King on trial for treason and becomes the first head of the Republican Government. With Rainsborough no longer able to protect Angelica, Joliffe plots his revenge. Mourning her murdered husband, Angelica finds herself standing on the gallows facing her execution on the same day as the Kings, only to be taunted by Joliffe for being alone in her dying hour. Meanwhile the free-thinking John Lilburne is once again put on trial for his life, but this time by his fellow revolutionaries.
