Born on this day - Charles I
19th November 1600
Charles I ascended the thrones of England, Scotland, and Ireland in 1625, succeeding his father, King James I and VI. Despite being the second son, as his elder brother succumbed to typhoid fever in 1612, Charles faced turmoil during his rule. Marrying a Catholic intensified political and religious tensions, leading to the English Civil War and his execution for high treason.
