Title: King and the Gentleman, The: Charles Stuart and Oliver Cromwell, 1599-1649
Description: New York, St. Martin's Press. 1999, First Edition. (ISBN: 0-312-24405-3) Hardback, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. English historians, it seems, never tire of examining the relationship of Charles I to his archrival, Oliver Cromwell. An unpopular ruler, Charles reigned as King of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1625 to 1649. His religious intolerance, exacerbation of class divisions, and financial recklessness provided ample fodder for Royalist opposition, led by Cromwell. A far more skilled military leader and politician than the King, Cromwell led the radical Independents to victory in the civil wars of the 1640s. As New/As New.
