But after a while England was sick of Cromwell's cronies' shenanigans and they invited Charles back to be king again. He arrived on England's shores all in glory, and declared a national holiday called "Royal Oak Day", commemorating the night he spent up in the oak tree, the closest to death he ever got!
The tree he stayed in is famous, so of course we had to go visit it! There used to be woods around it but the trees were cleared for pasture - except for the famous oak. (It was absolutely huge but it was damaged by a storm last year and 70% of it was ripped off!) There is also a pub down the street from our flat called The Royal Oak. For the longest time we had no idea what the pub was on about but now we know!
