Milton started working on this pamphlet during the trial of King Charles I but it was published after his execution. Milton advocates the right of the people to elect their leader. He further delineates the role of judiciary that should have the power to restrict and control the corruption and misuse of authority by kings. Emanating strong political beliefs, this work by Milton is one of his best.
