La « tyrannie » de Charles Ier Stuart : circulation d’une légende noire d’une révolution à l’autre (Angleterre-France, 1649-1789)

Abstract : The article deals with the black legend of a true monarch, King Charles I of England, which was reused against another monarch in another context. The resurgence of the tyranny and regicide of Charles I in France in the wake of the Revolution, through the dissemination of a series of carefully selected English texts of the 1640s is analysed as an element that led to the regicide of Louis XVI. In this way, Milton’s Defensio, originally written in latin and translated into French in 1792 is used to justify the French King’s death thanks to a comparison between Charles I’s and Louis XVI’s tyranny.
