Today we attended the annual commemoration [held in London on the nearest Sunday to the 30th January] of the murder of King Charles 1st. in 1649

Organised by the 'English Civil War Society', the 'Kings Army' assembles outside St James' Palace [where the King was held prior to excecution]. then marches to the place of execution [Banqueting House, Whitehall], holds a short religious service, before marching to the Statue of his Majesty in Trafalgar Square, where a wreath is laid.

Here are some photographs of todays rather rainy proceedings !

Has history been unfair to Charles I?

Curiosity:
In "Twenty Years After" (second part of "The Three Musketers" by Alexandre Dumas senior) it was John Francis de Winter, aka Mordaunt.

Have you seen Charles I of Britain?


Was Princess Henrietta Anne, the daughter of King Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria, despised by her royal French cousins?

Given that this was during Ng the thirty years war and that invasion was always possible, levying the ship tax in peace time wasn't a bad idea. However if it was to be a permanent navy tax than it should have been made one through parliament. This just caused unnecessary trouble.

For me, Charles I and Henrietta Maria are some of the most interesting historical British monarchs and yet despite the drama of their lives and Charles historical importance, there is very little media attention. I think that's a shame, as the seventeenth century was very interesting and still very relevant, and something about Charles reign and the civil war would make a really awesome TV series - if they can do queen vic and QE2 than why not the man who lost it all? Probably because most UK (and by proxy most anglophone) viewers don't want to see something about a time when Britain was deeply divided, lacking international influence, and on the verge of collapse.

This is an interesting article which explains why Charles and HM and the Stuart's in general have been neglected in favour of their Tudor predecessors in pop culture.

It's because they were so awful and disasterous that I find them so interesting - I tend to find failure more interesting than success. Say what you will but their impact was very important and still worthy of analysis and study. I can't help wondering what might have happened if someone else was monarch in that period, or if Charles had married someone else, or if through some miracle Charles had been able to achieve his goals...

I don't think so.. she was considered a suitable match for the heir to Louis xiv [ at the time of the marriage] the Duc d'Orleans, and was entrusted by Louis with important negotiations with her brother Charles II. It seems that at the time of her death, she was pretty much universally loved at Versailles [altho' not by the Chevalier de Lorraine, who MAY have poisoned her].

Henriette-Anne wasn't poisoned by anyone. She probably died of peritonitis following appendicitis, besides her health was always poor (probably tuberculosis or anorexia) and multiple pregnancies and miscarriages didn't help. She did treat her husband badly and was actually a right little madam where he was concerned, although in fairness most of Philippe's equally poor treatment of her was mostly down to his own frustrations, boredom, and nobody taking him seriously - all things considered the negioations should have been his job, him being the man and all.

She was never healthy. She suffered from convulsions when she was young. And though she claimed to be poisoned before her death, she had been suffering symptoms before even returning to France. The autopsy said gastroenteritis though some doubted it. The fact the man some surveys her poisoner was the suspected lover of her husband, helped with such rumors. Her husband's second wife said her husband had to have rosaries around, to bring himself to have relations with a woman.

Her eldest daughter died of a similar fait. And it too was rumored to be poison. In her case speculation was her mother in law because she couldn't have Kidd. But it is said both her husband and mother in law genuinely were distressed by her death. She was over weight and suffered depression which wouldn't help. Her husband's infirmities, her lack of children and the coldness of court where the queen could not be touched, all contributed.

This Morning,[a sparkling sunny day in London] we attended the[Anglo-Catholic] High Mass at the 'Banqueting House' in Whitehall, where 369 years ago [to the hour] Charles 1st [King and Martyr] was beheaded.

'Standing room' only the mass was also attended by 2 kings [we were told by Ushers], not seeing them ourselves. King Simeon of Bulgaria and King Constantine of the Hellenes.
Also present were Lord and Lady Nicholas Windsor. Lord Nicholas is Patron of the 'Society of Charles, King and Martyr' which [each year] organises a set of commemorations here and at St Georges Chapel Windsor, where the King was buried]

Here are some photographs...

The last picture shows the Clock Tower of the Horseguards building,which overlooks the Banqueting House. The Clock has a Black dot by the two 'marker', denoting and commemorating the hour the Kings head was struck from his body.

Thank you, wyevale, for making a little bit more of British history come alive for me. Beautiful photos.
