Charles I

King Charles I was born 1600 to Anne of Denmark and James VI of Scotland, who also became King James I of England three years after Charles’s birth. He was incredibly unpopular and is remembered for his disputes with Parliament. He dissolved Parliament three times in total and ruled without it for 11 years, a time known as the Personal Rule. England became divided, with some supporting Parliament and some supporting the king, and civil war broke out. In the end, it was decided that peace wouldn’t be achieved whilst Charles was alive so he was tried and executed for treason. After the king’s death, Oliver Cromwell was named Lord Protector and ruled the country as a republic for 11 years.
