As a first order of business, Charles I signed the Petition of Rights in the year of 1628. Following afterward in the year of 1629, he first dismissed the Third Parliament and arrested their opponents, therefore declaring his sole rule as King. Charles I had made peace with the two countries of Spain and France in the year of 1630. Seven years later, he began the Bishop Wars and attempted to force the religion of Catholicism on Scotland. By 1642, he had London evacuated and several years later, he was sent to be beheaded where everyone could listen upon his actions.
