Charles the first and second

Bill or George or Sue, anything but Charles, I still hate that name! (With apologies to Johnny Cash’s ‘A Boy Named Sue’ songwriter Shel Silverstein.)

For a long time, Prince Charles had nightmares about one day being named King Charles III. Merrie Olde England was more like Bloody Olde England when his two namesakes ruled the land.

King Charles I

⬆️ KING CHARLES I (1625-1649) led the country into a civil war and is the only English monarch to be executed.

King Charles II

⬆️ His son, KING CHARLES II (1660-1685), spent several years in exile after his father’s beheading, all the while fathering numerous children with his many mistresses.


NOW 73-YEAR-OLD PRINCE CHARLES…

‘What do I do now?!’


But for now and always, Elizabeth was one good Queen.
