2 [ENGLISH CIVIL WAR, 1642] TWO TRACTS: A machavillian plot, or A caution for England / A declaration a...for the disarming of all popish recusants...
London: A.N. for Ed. Husbands and I. Franke, 1642. A machavillian plot, or A caution for England, presented in a time when princes were so pious and judges durst bee valiant to declare against vunhonest slaverie. Attributed to Sir Robert Heath. London: printed Anno Dom. 1642; printed wrappers. 14 pp. Good. 6 copies in OCLC. ##### A declaration of the Lords and Commons assembled in Parliament : for the disarming of all popish recusants, and that it shall be lawfull for any of His Majesties subjects to seize upon the persons of all such as shall execute the illegall Commission of array : together with a declaration of the Lords and Commons in Parliament that all persons whatsoever which shall assist His Majesty in this vvar with horse, arms, or money shall be traytors to His Majesty, the Parliament, and kingdom. London: Printed by A.N. for Ed. Husbands and I. Franke ..., August 24, 1642 8 pp. 6 copies in OCLC. ##### When Charles I came to the English throne in 1625, he inherited the rocky relationship his father had with Parliament. Charles I was a strong believer in the divine right of kings and resented Parliamentary objections to his tax-raising efforts and his marriage to a Spanish Catholic princess. In 1629, Charles locked the doors to Parliament and refused to allow them to meet. By 1640, however, Charles needed Parliament to approve new taxes so he could continue his fight against Scottish rebels. Parliament’s demands that Charles curb his power in exchange for approving taxes, and public criticisms of the king and his marriage to a Catholic by some members of Parliament led Charles to call for the arrest of five of his most vocal critics in the spring of 1642. Parliament members had been tipped off of the impending arrests and managed to flee to safety. Over the next months, tensions increased as both sides raised forces. They met in battle at Edgehill on October 23, 1642. Over the next ten years, war ravaged the country as the Parliamentarians (also known as the roundheads) slowly gained ground over the Royalists (also known as the cavaliers), ultimately resulting in the trial and execution of Charles I, the exile of his son Charles II, and the establishment of the English Commonwealth under the rule of Oliver Cromwell.
