Sir Michael Livesey (1611-1663?)
Livesey fought as a soldier on the side of Parliament throughout the Civil War. In 1648 he was one of the 'regicides' who tried King Charles I and signed his death warrant. He became a Commissioner of the Admiralty shortly before Charles II's Restoration in 1660 but soon afterwards fled abroad. He is shown seated wearing three-quarter armour. On the table on the right are his close helmet, a gauntlet, a goblet and a pair of flintlock pistols, the butts in the form of a crocodile's heads whose open jaws enclose a seated lion.
