  • Taking the throne in the year 1625, at the age of 25. Following his father's death, King James I. However, he was not the ideal king that everyone hoped for. Charles I was a disappointment of his family name. Charles I was hated a lot by the people of his country. Just as he became king,  he had a hate relationship with George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham who had betrayed him.
  • He had many problems with him and the country, there was too much going on with parliament over money.  Meaning, that Scotland's legislative had issues with him using a lot of money for unneeded things. Charles I was also hated for marrying Henrietta Maria, a Catholic French princess. Therefore the protestants were offended by his choice.. 
  • Another issue was that the Puritan Protestants hated the religious policy Charles had made. It was because of Charles regain of old laws and taxes, that were not agreed with the Parliament. Even when they would complain, Charles would just dismiss them. So when war broke out with the Scotish forced him to recall the Parliament.  Instead of Charles getting his money, he was given with a Grand Remonstrance which was a long list of 204 complains from his country.
  • On 20th January 1648, Charles I was ordered to a court case which was controlled by Charle's greatest enemies.  It took place in London, England and it was no ordinary court, it was the High Court of Justice, a very strict and important court in Westminster Hall.
  •  At the end of court on Januray 30th 1649, Charles I  was convicted for treason and was sentenced to death by being beheded in front of the public. When the death took place, after the executer had arosed the head of Charles, there was no cheers, instead a low audible grown.
