.....beheaded; the only English King to be publicly executed. Speech from the Scaffold
.....Burke says he married 11 May 1625 or 1 May.
.....He believed that God had made him a King, so he did not need to consult his subjects. He managed to rule without a Parliament until 1640, and tried to force his Scottish subjects to accept English Church services. When this led to a war he could not afford, he promised to share some of his power with Parliament. People no longer trusted him and England slid into Civil War.

"And therefore I tell you (and I pray God it be not laid to your charge) that I am the Martyr of the people." - [Speech on the scaffold]
