Naseby

 

English village in Northamptonshire where on June 14, 1645, during the English Bourgeois Revolution of the 17th Century, the army of Parliament (7,000 infantrymen and 6,500 cavalrymen), reorganized by O. Cromwell and commanded by T. Fairfax, defeated the troops of Charles I (4,000 infantrymen and 4,000 cavalrymen).

Cromwell’s cavalry played the decisive role in the battle; it first routed the royal cavalry and then attacked the infantry from the flank and rear. More than 1,000 Royalists were killed, and 5,000 men and the entire artillery were captured. The victory at Naseby was the turning point in the civil war of 1642–46 for the Parliamentary forces.
