"The most interesting thing about King Charles I is that he was 5'6" tall at the start of his reign, but only 4'8" tall at the end of it... because of... Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England..." (Monty Python)
- having been defeated by Cromwell, James I was indicted for tyranny, sentenced to death and beheaded -
