KING Charles I will return to Monmouthshire this weekend for the first time in more 400 years, in the form of history enthusiast Daniel Williams.

Since December last year, Mr Williams has been visiting the many places the Stuart monarch would have travelled through during his 17th-century reign.

Mr Williams, who remains in full character on his visits, will arrive at The Queen’s Head in Monmouth on Saturday, August 18, at around 1pm.

The pub is significant – it was where King Charles’ enemy, Oliver Cromwell, was shot at by an assassin.

He will then travel through the town to The King’s Head, where King Charles once stayed, and view a mural of the monarch. He will then visit Raglan Castle later in the afternoon.

Mr Williams is inviting anyone who would like to find out more about the life of Charles I to join him.
