  • I dismissed parliament three times in the first four years of my ruling. In 1629, I dismissed parliament all together. I was then forced to put parliament back into play after my unrest in Scotland.
  • Lacking Flexibility and Imagination, Charles was unable to to understand that those political deceits that he always practiced in increasingly vain attempts to uphold his authority which later impugned his honor and and damaged his credit.
  • I now know what I did, and this is the best punishment for my actions of dismissing parliament.
  • And now England will be forced to transfer the power given to the Monarchy by Charles to the Parliament
