Transcript of Why did Charles' personal rule collapse?

Laudianism and the new prayer book Despite the early opposition made by the Scots James, in 1637 Charles I decided to go much further and introduce a new Prayer Book and give the Bishops real power.
Laud was determined to bring the Scottish church into line with what was happening to the English church.
In 1638 he used a royal proclamation to issue new canons on the conduct of services without reference to the general assembly of the Scottish church.
In 1637 a version of the new 1633 English prayer book was introduced. This sparked opposition from the Scots. In Edinburgh, riots broke out when the new Prayer Book was read.
In 1638, the Presbyterians introduced a National Covenant protesting the religious changes
It rejected the canons and the prayer book and eventually opened the way to thoroughgoing Presbyterianism.
Charles wanted to put down the rebellious Scots by force, but having little money, he was forced to raise levies of raw conscripts and mobilize the "trained bands" of England's Northern Counties.
The scots however were a highly-motivated force who, just returned from the battles of the Thirty Years War and were becoming more and more determined.

A lot of opposition to Arminianism particularly from Puritans
An example of one of the 1st open signs of oppositions religious changes imposed was St Gregory's case.

They were publicly mutilated for this

Charles showed little enthusiasm for Scottland.
The Scots felt annoyed by Charles neglect.
Scotland's institutions were given less prestige than England’s.
The English received the bulk of royal patronage and Scots were excluded from England’s growing overseas trade.
The nobility was excluded from power and alimented from the crown. The Scottish revolution Underlying Causes of the Scottish Revolution Act of revocation:
In 1625, Charles revoked all grants of land made by the crown since 1540.
It affected almost all families of substance and was an extraordinarily tactless move.
The landowners saw themselves as rightful owners of the land
