Rump Parliament

The part of the Long Parliament in Britain that continued to sit after the forced exclusion of Presbyterian members in 1648. It voted for the trial that resulted in the execution of Charles I.

Origen

Origin uncertain: said to derive from The Bloody Rump, the name of a paper written before the trial, the word being popularized after a speech by Major General Brown, given at a public assembly; also said to have been coined by Clem Walker in his History of Independency (1648), as a term for those strenuously opposing the king.
