Charles I (November 19, 1600 – January 30, 1649) was King of England, Scotland, and Ireland, from March 27, 1625 until his execution in 1649. Charles is one of the most exasperating and tragic of all royal figures in the history of England. In one short reign he destroyed everything his Tudor predecessors had created. His execution was the most shocking event in the whole of the seventeenth century.
