His father was King of England in March 1603, when his father and brothers immigrated to England, they left Charles and did not take him with them, because he was a sick child.

Charles overcame some of his physical disabilities and became a skilled knight and dancer. He also loved hunting and fencing. When his brother Henry died because of his illness at the age of 18 in 1612, he was the heir to the throne. Charles at the age of 12, became his heir and received many titles, including Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay, because of his new status as the eldest son.

This led the opposition in parliament to rise up against him. He dissolved Parliament in 1629 when Parliament demanded that he sign a document guaranteeing more freedoms and rights. The Parliament was summoned in 1640 when it needed funds to equip its forces. The parliamentarians took advantage of the opportunity to get rid of two of his supporters and encouraged him to tyranny. They were Straford and Bishop Lud. The King did not move in the face of the killing of his two close friends. You for a faction without another raised the parliament again, as well as all its opponents.
