James I became the King of England in 1603, believing in Christianity and succeeding Elizabeth I, living in the Palace of Whitehall. He died in 1625 and was succeeded by Charles I, who dissolved Parliament in 1629, starting the English Civil War in 1642. Charles was beheaded in 1649 and had signed the Treaty of Uxbridge (1645) and the Treaty of Berwick (1639). John Knox wrote against him and the Petition of Right was issued in 1629. Charles I fled to Oxford, signed the Covenant with the Scots (1638), and was assasinated by John Felton in the Palace of Westminster – losing the Battle of Edgehill (1642). Parliamentarians won the Civil War and Charles I abdicated in 1648, with Oliver Cromwell appointed as the Lord Protector. The Triennial Act was approved in 1641 and Charles I was trialled for high treason in 1649 by Oliver Cromwell.
