Summary
Barely forty years after England's golden age under Elizabeth I, the country was at war with itself, split between loyalty to the Crown and Parliament, with armies raised in Scotland and Ireland and fighters arriving from the continent to wage war on English soil. The English Civil War would set family against family and friend against friend, and its casualties were immense--England had become a failed state. At the head of the disintegrating kingdom was King Charles I. In this vivid portrait--newly informed by previously unseen manuscripts--Leanda de Lisle depicts a man who was not cruel enough for his times. Principled and high minded, he would pay a terrible price for the personal honor he so valued. However, in his own destruction, Charles sowed the seeds for the monarchy's rebirth. England's revolution lasted eleven unhappy years and forced her more radical religious experimenters to take their faith and revolutionary vision to the New World, leaving England to mend its wounds and restore its fortunes and future as the world's preeminent constitutional monarchy
