    Description

    King Charles I of England, Signature, as King, "Charles R." The signature is excised from a larger document, 2.5" x 1.75", mounted on a larger paper (3.75" x 3" overall). A small piece of sealing wax is still affixed to the paper.
    Charles I (1600-1649) was King of England, Scotland, and Ireland from March 27, 1625 until his execution. Charles famously engaged in a struggle for power with the Parliament of England. He was an advocate of the Divine Right of Kings, and many citizens of England feared that he was attempting to gain absolute power. Many of his actions, particularly the levying of taxes without Parliament's consent, caused widespread opposition. Religious conflicts also permeated Charles's reign.
