A Royal History: King Charles I & II

One was known as the "martyr of the people" and the other as a "merry monarch" — these were the predecessors who reigned before King Charles III. Royal followers had speculated whether the new monarch would choose one of his middle names once crowned; Philip, Arthur or George, linking back to his late father, a mythical king or his grandfather. Here's a look at the stories of those kings who once sat on the British throne and more royal histories.
