Eikon Basilike, The Pourtrature of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings (1649).
The heavily allegorical frontispiece of the Eikon Basilike depicts the King as a Christian martyr.
___
The captions read:
> Immota Trivmphans (scroll around the rock): “Unmoved, Triumphant”;   
> Clarior é tenebris (beam from the clouds): “Brighter through the darkness”;
> Crescit Sub Pondere Virtvs: “Virtue grows beneath weights” (scroll around the tree);
> Beatam & Æternam: “Blessed and Eternal” (around the heavenly crown marked Gloria (“Glory”));
> Splendidam & Gravem: “Splendid and Heavy” (around the Crown of England, removed from the King’s head and lying on the ground), with the motto Vanitas (“vanity”);
> Asperam & Levem: “Bitter and Light”, the martyr’s crown of thorns held by Charles; contains the motto Gratia (“grace”);
> Coeli Specto: “I look to Heaven”;
> In Verbo Tvo Spes Mea: “In Thy Word is My Hope”;
> Christi Tracto: “I entreat Christ” or “By the word of Christ”;
> Mundi Calco: “I tread on the world”.
The frontispiece was engraved by William Marshall.
