1 The quest for political stability, 1625–49

In studying Theme 1, students need to understand the nature of Stuart rule and the reasons why the system failed to provide a stable system of government in the given period. They should understand Charles I’s political ambitions and the extent of parliamentary opposition to the king resulting in the complete breakdown of the relationship. Detailed knowledge of the events of the civil wars is not required, but students should understand the growing political and military power of parliament in the years to 1646, and Charles’ unwillingness to compromise his royal authority.
