NPG D1306; The execution of King Charles I after Unknown artist

Public Execution of King Charles I

Charles, opposed the English Parliament
taking for himself, a catholic Queen,
believing he had absolute power
over Parliament and people.

King and Parliament, always at odds
resulting in English Civil War,
opposing forces, scarred this land
times of peace, a forgotten time.

Charles brought to trial
charged with treason, against England,
he believed he had absolute power
Parliament, believed he was to serve.

Charles was found guilty
of the charges, laid against him,
and received the ultimate sentence
off with his head.
