When Charles I was beheaded on 30th January 1649, the executioner and his assistant wore false beards in an attempt to hide their identities from the angry Royalists. In the late 19th century, several relics that had been kept by supporters after the King’s execution were interred in his burial vault at Windsor. These relics included a tooth, a fragment of bone from the King’s severed neck and a portion of his beard.
