Charles I of England
(1600 - 1649)
"Charles the First, was the Worst!"
When riots and mobs began, King Charles I of England fled to the North and raised a large army; this started the English Civil War (1642-1649).
King Charles I of England was strict and put anybody who disagreed with him in prison. He believed that he had Divine Right; the right to rule by God. He also believed that his word is law, and everybody should not question his word and simply agree and follow him. He used ancient reasons for heavy taxation and old taxes such as Ship Money (A medieval custom that made coastal towns pay for the upkeep of naval ships and defences).
The majority of King Charles I of England's funds went to fund the war between France and Spain.
