Can someone please call Parliament and ask them to raise the tax.
So much money!!!!1
Whenever Charles needed money he'd have to ask Parliament. In June 1625 Parliament only granted Charles 1 year poundage. This means he had to ask Parliament to add tax.
Since Parliament refused Charles decided to take matters into his own hands and raise income through a forced loan (Ship Money), Even though he got money he became very unpopular.
This was one major cause of the English Civil War.
