Who do you support. The song is purely based on fun, don't base your answer on it xD.

I'm a Virginian. There need be no thought given to it. I vote Cavalier.

I'm of rather mixed opinions. As a non-Conformist and Huntingdonman I should be an out and out Roundhead. However, Pym and his bunch of Puritans were outright crooks, intent on pushing an agenda no one really wanted and were a bunch of snot-faced cads who pushed the country into an illegal civil war and were full of their own self-righteousness. I don't think I can quite put across quite how much I hate Pym and his little gang, sponsored by Warwick.

For that reason I'm a Cavalier, as the King had done nothing constitutionally illegal and he was popular throughout the war. Also, I get a cooler hat and beard.

As a former member of Prince Rupert's Bluecoats or Blew Regiment of Foote I am going to have to say Royalist.

All work and no play makes Cromwell a dull boy.

Pass me the silly wig and lace please.

Caveliers for me of course. Especially at that time (but now as well) it was a crime to kill a monarch. Also Cromwell was quite the hypocrite, first he abolishes the monarchy, but with what does he replace it?



Exactly!
