Charles I Plaque

Charles I (19 November 1600 – 30 January 1649)[a] was King of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 27 March 1625 until his execution in 1649. He was born into the House of Stuart as the second son of King James VI of Scotland, but after his father inherited the English throne in 1603 (as James I), he moved to England, where he spent much of the rest of his life. He became heir apparent to the three kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland in 1612 on the death of his elder brother Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales. An unsuccessful and unpopular attempt to marry him to the Spanish Habsburg princess Maria Anna culminated in an eight-month visit to Spain in 1623 that demonstrated the futility of the marriage negotiations. Two years later he married the Bourbon princess Henrietta Maria of France. Quoted from Wikipedia

The silk vest worn by King Charles I when he was beheaded, in 1649, still exists. It is in the Museum of London.

I like the film Cromwell in which Richard Harris plays Cromwell and Alec Guinness plays King Charles I.

King Charles wasn't very lucky in his life.... But your photo with the vestiges of the past and this fabulous sky is amazing.

A beautiful picture of the Royal Castle Joe. A few years ago I read a very good book about the wife of Charles I, Henrietta Maria. She had a very interesting life and was so young when she married the King, just 15. It was also rumoured that he was not the father of Charles II. I feel I want to read the book again now, but I think I gave it back to the charity shop. Cheers, Rosa.
