  • An authentic strand of hair from Charles I (1600-1649)

King Charles I (1600-1649) took to the English throne in 1625. An unpopular monarch with a tyrannical bent, he soon turned the powerful institutions of government against himself. His marriage to a Roman Catholic (Henrietta Maria) was another black mark in a Protestant kingdom.

In 1642 the Parliaments of England and Scotland declared war on the king, under the leadership of Oliver Cromwell. The English Civil War raged for four years, ending in a Royalist defeat. Charles I surrendered at Newark-on-Trent in May 1646 and was beheaded the following year.

Charles I occupies a key position in English history as the first (and last) monarch to be tried of treason and beheaded.

This authentic half inch strand of hair is a wonderfully unusual item, perfect for any curio collection.

It comes presented on an 8 x 5.75 inch display card, perfect for framing.

Free global shipping. Certificate of Authenticity and our Lifetime Moneyback Guarantee of Authenticity included.
