On the 19th November in 1600, Charles I was born. Charles believed that the king ruled by Divine Right, this view would eventually lead to his downfall.

Charles, the second son of King James VI of Scotland and Anne of Denmark, was crowned king of England at Westminster Abbey, after which he spent most of his time in a power struggle with Parliament. By 1629 Charles had had numerous arguments with his ministers which lead him to abolish Parliament. Charles could do this under what was known as Royal Prerogative, the divine right to rule, but by the middle of the century, he was wading into trouble, many people regarding him as insensitive. Charles’s implementation of his prerogative covered the years between 1629 to 1640, eleven years of what you could claim was a semblance of peace. Equally, it could be argued that it was really eleven years of tyranny.

If you saw my Insta story last week you’ll know I’m making a poster of the monarchs of England. I thought this week I might show some of the lesser known ones I’ve painted so far. This is William iii and Mary ii. They actually ruled jointly (so were ruling king n queen at the same time.) Mary was 5 foot 11- a very tall woman for the time. William was 5 foot 6- and when Mary saw him for the first time she burst into tears. Don’t worry though they did end up growing very fond of each other. William and Mary took over from Mary’s dad James ii after he was kicked out for being Catholic. This was called ‘the glorious revolution’. Mary felt a bit guilty about replacing her dad out for the rest of her life. Her dad wasn’t thrilled about it either.

In 1592 Sir Walter Raleigh married Elizabeth I’s maid of honour Bess Throckmorton without the Queen’s permission. Elizabeth was furious and Raleigh was swiftly imprisoned in the @TowerofLondon. Although he was soon released, he was to find himself prisoner in the Tower twice more, accused of treason. Walter Raleigh was eventually executed on October 29th 1618, during the reign of James I.

Die britische Thronfolge hat seit dem 16. Jahrhundert eine Menge ungewöhnlicher Wendungen genommen. Man stellt sich Thronfolge oft so leicht vor: Ein König herrscht, und sein ältester Sohn folgt ihm nach. Aber was, wenn es keinen Sohn gibt? Wenn der Thronfolger die falsche Religion hat? Oder es gar eine Weile lang gar keinen König gab?

Kings’ School Al Barsha showing their respect for the millions of lives that were taken and even more whose world was never the same again as a result of the ‘Great War’. They were sold a falsehood of valour and glory and forced into unimaginable horror. The word sacrifice should never be used when describing this elitist war. Lest We Forget. ‘My Boy Jack'

1914-18 "HAVE you news of my boy Jack? "
Not this tide.
"When d'you think that he'll come back?" Not with this wind blowing, and this tide.
"Has any one else had word of him?"
Not this tide.
For what is sunk will hardly swim,
Not with this wind blowing, and this tide. "Oh, dear, what comfort can I find?" None this tide,
Nor any tide,
Except he did not shame his kind--- Not even with that wind blowing, and that tide.

Then hold your head up all the more,
This tide,
And every tide;
Because he was the son you bore,
And gave to that wind blowing and that tide.

"He won't be needing THAT!" A dead soldier is relieved of his valuables by a comrade - bodies were often found stripped of weapons, money and even clothes after battles. The night after the Battle of Edgehill in 1642 there was a sharp frost and Sir Adrian Scrope was among those seriously wounded - left for dead and stripped, he spent the night among the fallen and in the morning he was just one of the naked corpses littering the field. Waking in the morning, Scrope pulled a corpse on top of himself for warmth, and survived. William Harvey, the great anatomist and physiologist, to whom we owe this story, noted that the cold had probably saved Scrope's life by slowing his bleeding.
