Storyboard Text

  • Charles I offends Puritans and Presbyterian Scots. Parliament created a document to limit Charles and he signs it, however he completely ignores it. Eventually, he needs money when his country is threatened.
  • In 1641, Charles calls Parliament back into session and they quickly make laws to limit the king's power. He tries arresting the members of Parliament, but they escape. A mob of Londoners show up outside his palace and Charles flees to Northern England, where he raises an army of those who stayed loyal to him.
  • Charles' loyalists were called the Cavaliers and they began fighting against the Puritan supporters of Parliament. Neither side could gain an advantage over the other.
  • The Puritans make Oliver Cromwell their general and quickly things started to change. Cromwell's new army began defeating the Cavaliers.
  • In 1647, Cromwell captured Charles and held him prisoner for two years. In 1649, the king was put on trial for treason against the Parliament and was sentenced to death.
  • The execution was revolutionary. It was the first time in history that any reigning king was publicly executed. Soon after the death of Charles, Cromwell began ruling England with a new form of government.
