From Wikipedia: "The Declaration of Breda (dated 4 April 1660) was a proclamation by Charles II of England in which he promised a general pardon for crimes committed during the English Civil War and the Interregnum for all those who recognised Charles as the lawful king; the retention by the current owners of property purchased during the same period; religious toleration; and the payment of arrears to members of the army, and that the army would be recommissioned into service under the crown. Further, regarding the two latter points, the parliament was given the authority to judge property disputes and responsibility for the payment of the army. The first three pledges were all subject to amendment by acts of parliament."
Theodor Matham, also Theodoor Matham was a Dutch engraver, the younger son of Jacob Matham, and brother of Jan and Adriaen Matham. He studied under Cornelius Bloemaert.
