But, theleveller, those who found Charles guilty of these offences were themselves subsequently convicted, by a properly and legally appointed court, of High Treason and regicide, and executed in their turn. So the status quo was restored whereby the people are 'subjects' of the monarch, and that is the legal situation which persists to this day, howsomever some may endeavour to wriggle out of their [purely notional] 'subjection'.
Sorry if I've messed up your "that feels a lot better"; but there it is.
