Restore the full pardon to Sir Francis Bacon, Viscount St. Alban that was prepared by King James I., but never signed.
Our petition, a continuance to Sir Francis Bacon’s petition to King James I., written in 1624, three years after Bacon’s impeachment as Chancellor for alleged bribes, a vindication of this injustice needs a fresh review by the United Nations, the British Government, her Majesty The Queen, his Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales.
Sir Francis Bacon’s petition left his hands to petition King James I’s mercy and move his Majesty’s royal heart to take compassion and to grant his desire:
“I prostrate myself at your Majesty’s feet; I, your ancient servant, now sixty-four years old in age, and three years five months old in misery. I desire not from your Majesty means, nor place, nor employment, but only, after so long a time of expiation, a complete and total remission of the sentence of the Upper House, to the end that blot of ignominy may be removed from me, and from my memory with posterity; that I die not a condemned man, but may be to your Majesty, as I am to God, nova creatura.”
A full pardon was prepared but never signed. Please support us and help to restore a full pardon and allow it to gain representation in the United Nations, the British Government, and her Majesty’s royal heart to take compassion and to grant Sir Francis Bacon’s 400 year-old desire.
