    The causes of the English civil war

    1. 1. Charles became King in 1625. He believedin the ‘Divine Right’ of being the King. Thisis the belief that the King or Queen ischosen by God!Therefore, arguing or disagreeing with theKing/Queen was seen as a disagreement withGod’s servant. Parliament were not too happyabout this, especially as the King startedmaking decisions without asking them. Charlesset up a group named the ‘Court of the StarChamber’ which was made up of landownersfriendly with the King. This court madedecisions about laws which Charles wanted tointroduce to England. This was usuallyParliament’s job.
    2. 2. England at this time was aPROTESTANT country. Many MP’swere strict Protestants called‘PURITANS’. Charles married a Frenchcatholic called Henrietta Maria in1625. Those puritan Parliament MP’swere extremely worried about thepresence of a Catholic wife. Shewould give the King advice, wouldshe try and make England morecatholic?
    3. 3. The king received most of his money to run the countryfrom Parliament, who controlled the finances of England.Charles’ ‘Court of the Star Chamber’ and hisunsuccessful battles in France and Spain wasted lots ofmoney. Charles approached Parliament for more moneyin 1629. Parliament only gave him 1/7th of what he hadasked for. Parliament wanted more control if it was togive away their money. Charles was so unhappy and hedismissed Parliament saying he would rule withoutthem. He did this for eleven years – this is called ‘theeleven years of tyranny’.
    4. 4. When ruling without Parliament, Charles quicklyran out of money. To try and raise more money,he started charging fines that hadn’t existed sincemedieval times. For example, ‘Ship Money’ meantpeople living in coastal areas had to pay extrataxes to support the navy. He eventually madepeople not even living near the coast pay this tax.Fines like this made lots of people unhappy.
    5. 5. Charles and the Archbishop ofCanterbury, William Laud, wantedto make the Church of Englandmore elaborate (moredecorations, statues etc.) ManyProtestant MP’s were becomingeven more worried by Charles’actions. REMEMBER – protestant
    6. 6. Charles decided that he wanted to try andmake the Scottish church become more likethe English church, for instance trying tomake them use the English prayer book.Scotland was even more extremelyprotestant than England. ScottishProtestants, led by their bishops, rebelledand invaded England.This cost England more money and lives,and upset Protestant allies. Parliament wasunhappy.
    7. 7. Charles was really strugglingwithout Parliament’s money,especially after the Bishop’s war.He recalled Parliament allowingthem to help make decisionsagain. This is called the ‘LongParliament’.
    8. 8. However, Parliament was not going to come back quietly.They produced a document called the Grand Remonstranceoutlining Charles’ faults and the ways to improve thecountry. The main way of doing this was suggested to be bygiving a lot more power to parliament.Charles did not want this however and tried to arrest 5leading MP’s. Parliament gave him one more chance tomake changes but Charles refused and declared WAR!
