English royalty, the first of two sons and third of seven children born from the marriage between James, Duke of York (later James II of England & VII of Scotland) and Mary of Modena. He was styled Duke of Cambridge, but never formally created so, due to the fact that he died so young.

At the time of his birth at St James's Palace, Charles was the second surviving child of James and Mary, a sister, Catherine Laura, having died the previous year. Another sister, Isabel, one year older than Charles, died at the age of four in 1681. Like so many of his brothers and sisters, the infant Duke lived for a little more than a month, dying of smallpox on 12 December the same year he was born, aged 35 days.
