The fall of the British monarchies 1637-1642

Russell, Conrad, 1937-

This is a history of the dramatic events which led to the collapse of Charles I's authority in England, Scotland, and Ireland, linking incidents in the King's three domains to construct a narrative account which makes sense of British history, as well as of the national story of each country.;The book traces the important role of the Scots in dividing the English and examines the Irish rebellion in its contemporary context. Above all, Professor Russell uncovers the role played by the king himself and argues that Charles Stuart was not the passive figure portrayed by so many historians, but an active protagonist in the political events which were eventually to lose him not only one crown, but three.;The book should be of interest to scholars and students of early modern British history, as well as political and constitutional historians
