The assassination of Spencer Perceval

May 11, 1812 Assassination and a prophetic dream
The British Tory Prime Minister, Spencer Perceval, the son of John Perceval, 2nd Earl of Egmont (1711 - '70), became the only British 'leader' to be assassinated, when he was shot dead in the House of Commons by a deranged bankrupt Liverpudlian businessman, John Bellingham. (When the news reached Nottingham the following day, Perceval's death was celebrated with a great parade of flags and drums through the town.)
Perceval was just entering the lobby of the House when he was shot by John Bellingham, who was hiding behind a door. The PM staggered forwards, grasped his chest and called out, "I am murdered! I am murdered!", falling to the Commons floor ...

A famous prophetic dream was associated with this event. Read on at the article in the Scriptorium.
