General Monck, seen here in his Garter robes, played a key role in the Restoration of Charles II. Cromwell's commander-in-chief in Scotland, he had become convinced that chaos would result if the monarchy were not restored and so in 1660 he marched his army to London and arranged for Charles II's return. The King rewarded him with a dukedom. This painting belonged to his friend, Lord Chancellor Clarendon.
