PARLIAMENTARY HISTORY

Part 1: Manuscript Minutes, Committee Books and Voting Records of the House of Lords, c1620-1714

Regnal Years, 1620-1714

The regnal year, as a method of dating, has been in use in England since the eighth century. From the accession of Richard I in 1189, government documents and private charters have expressed the date in this form. Until the death of Henry III in 1272, the regnal year was calculated from the day of coronation. Since 1307, however, it has commenced immediately following the death of the previous monarch. During the Interregnus (1649-60) official documents in England were dated by the year of grace. On the restoration of Charles II in 1660, Parliament declared that his reign had by right commenced immediately after his father’s execution. Because his regnal years were, therefore, calculated from January 1649, he was actually crowned in the twelfth year of his reign.
