Letter: Too good to be king

Sir: Mike Pentelow's letter (11 December) concerning King Charles II prompts me to mention that the king, Charles I, who is revered as a pillar of the Church of England, believed that he reigned by Divine Right, could do no wrong and was totally faithful to his wife, was the king that we beheaded for being a bad king.

There must be a moral in this somewhere.

Yours faithfully,


Rugby, Warwickshire
