King Charles I

King Charles I of England was born in 1600. He was the son of King James I of England. His older brother was supposed to be king but died. Charles I married Henrietta Maria of France. They had five kids. King Charles I was not tolerant of religions different than his and this caused a lot of problems in England and Scotland. One good thing that happened was that he gave a charter to the Puritans so they could found Massachusettes Bay Colony. A bad thing that happened was that so many people didn't like him that it caused a civil war. The Scots people captured the king and sent him back to England where he had a trial and was beheaded in 1649.
