Edmund Ludlow (c. 1617 - 1692) was an English parliamentarian, best known for his involvement in the execution of Charles I and these memoirs, published posthumously. Ludlow's memoirs are an invaluable source for the attitudes of the anti-Cromwell faction within the Parliamentary side of the English Civil War. After the Restoration, Ludlow lived an uncertain life on the Continent, as did many other opponents of King Charles.
