[Characters] The Cavalier

"A Child of Honour, a Gentleman well borne and bred, that loves his king for conscience sake, of a clearer countenance, and bolder look than other men, because of a more loyal Heart." -- Edward Simmons, chaplain to King Charles I.

Simmons was describing a Cavalier. And this painting of soldiers breaking into a house, facing an old man, with flowing white hair, standing there to greet them, arms crossed and sword at hip, is quite compelling.
