Historical background



Charles II was the eldest son of Charles I and Henrietta Maria of France. He was born May 29, 1630. After the execution of his father, he fled to Scotland and was proclaimed king in 1651 by his supporters. That same year he was defeated by Cromwell at Worcester and left England. In 1660 General Monk dictated through the parliament the return of Charles II. The judges of his father were tortured and persecuted Presbyterians. Lacking resources, he sold to Louis XIV Dunkirk and Mardyke. He died in 1685 without an heir. His brother Jacques II was crowned king.
