When Charles Stuart was born in 1600 it was his older brother Henry who was expected to get the top job. Charles was a sickly child, suffering terribly for the first few years of his life. Tragedy then struck and he became Prince of Wales. In today’s podcast we hear about his illnesses, his attempts at marriage, and a sympathetic treatment of Charles’ dealings with Parliament. We also discover who was responsible for declaring war in 1642.
