The Reign of Charles I, 1625-49

In this course, Dr David Smith (University of Cambridge) explores the reign of Charles I of England. The course begins by thinking about Charles’ reputation among modern historians, before considering his reign in four parts: his early life and reign up to 1629; his Personal Rule between 1629-40; the years immediately before the Civil War; and the final seven years of his reign, ending with his execution on 30 January 1649 and the abolition of the monarchy.
