Anuncio

Carlos II fue rey de Inglaterra, Escocia e Irlanda desde el 29 de mayo de 1660 hasta su muerte.

Su padre, Carlos I, fue ejecutado en 1649 tras la Guerra Civil Inglesa; la monarquía fue entonces abolida y el país se convirtió en una república bajo el mando de Oliver Cromwell, el «Lord Protector». En 1660, dos años después de la muerte de Cromwell, se restauró la monarquía bajo Carlos II.

A diferencia de su padre, Carlos II fue hábil en su relación con el Parlamento. Fue durante su reinado cuando se desarrollaron los partidos Whig y Tory . Se hizo célebre por sus numerosos hijos ilegítimos, de los que reconoció a catorce. Conocido como «el Alegre Monarca», Carlos II favoreció las artes y fue menos restrictivo que sus predecesores. Al abrazar el catolicismo en su lecho de muerte, Carlos II se convirtió en el primer católico que reinaba en Inglaterra desde la muerte de María I en 1558, y en Escocia desde la deposición de María, Reina de los Escoceses, en 1567.

Frases Carlos II de Inglaterra

„I asked the smith what news? He told me that there was no news that he knew of, since the good news of the beating of the rogues the Scots.“

— Charles II of England
Context: Mrs. Lane and I took our journey towards Bristol, resolving to lie at a place called Long Marson, in the vale of Esham. But we had not gone two hours on our way but the mare I rode on cast a shoe; so we were forced to ride to get another shoe at a scattering village, whose name begins with something like Long—. And as I was holding my horse's foot, I asked the smith what news? He told me that there was no news that he knew of, since the good news of the beating of the rogues the Scots. I asked him whether there was none of the English taken that joined with the Scots? He answered, that he did not hear that that rogue Charles Stewart was taken; but some of the others, he said, were taken, but not Charles Stewart. I told him, that if that rogue were taken he deserved to be hanged, more than all the rest, for bringing in the Scots. Upon which he said, that I spoke like an honest man, and so we parted. As quoted by Philibert de Gramont (1701), in Memoirs of the Court of Charles the Second (1846) by Anthony Hamilton, edited by Sir Walter Scott.
