King Charles I (Portrait from the studio of Anthony van Dyck, 1636)


British royalty, King Charles I of Scotland and Ireland 1625 to 1649, a patron of the arts who laid the foundations of the royal art collection and brought Anthony van Dyck to England to revolutionize portraiture. Called the most unfortunate of Princes for his unhappy life, Charles was the fourth child and second son of James I of Great Britain. As a child, he was a stammerer. He married Henrietta Maria, youngest daughter of Henri IV of France and Marie de Medicis, in 1625. He had nine kids; the first child, a son, died soon after birth.

Politically, he aroused great enmity, leaning too far toward Catholicism in an age of strident Puritanism in England, and ruling without the approval or say of Parliament. He abandoned Strafford to execution in 1641, set up his standard at Nottingham in July 1642 to confront Parliament, and executed Archbishop Laud in 1645. Parliament passed a special ordinance to try their overlord on 1 January 1649 OS, and the King was executed by beheading outside the Banquet House in Whitehall a few minutes after 2:00 PM on 30 January 1649 OS.

Source Notes

Paul Wright quotes a letter from the English Ambassador to his Secretary of State, "On Monday last the King rode to the Queen to Dunfermline and returned yesternight. They never loved better. This night at 11 of the clock the Queen was delivered of a son and word therof this night at about three hours brought to the King."

November 19, 1600 OS. The time was undoubtedly LAT, and inasmuch as the hour is a generally rounded off time, the correction of -11 minutes may be considered along with the necessary rectification.Martin Harvey in AQ Winter/1950 gives 10:04 PM rectified from "between 11 and 12 hours of even," historic testimony found in Lloyd's Evening Post as copies from a manuscript, November 19 OS."

(Gadbury gave 10:02:35 PM, with which Partridge disagreed in 1967, as did Adam. PC quotes NN for 10:00 PM. M.A. May 1907 gives 10:03 PM as "culled from Sibly's Celestial Science of Astrology.")

(Sally Davis quotes Charles Carlton, "Charles I: The Personal Monarch," Routledge, 1983, p.1, for "shortly after midday," " quoting contemporary sources, "Fleming, an astrologer of the period.")
