England
, Scotland , and Ireland from 27 March 1625 until his execution in 1649. Charles was the second son of King James VI of Scotland , but after his father inherited the English throne in 1603, he moved to England, where he spent much of the rest of his life. He became heir apparent to the English, Irish, and Scottish thrones on the death of his elder brother, Henry Frederick, Prince of Wales , in 1612.

Kingdom Of Scotland
The KINGDOM OF SCOTLAND ( Scottish Gaelic : Rìoghachd na h-Alba; Scots : Kinrick o Scotland) was a sovereign state in northwest Europe traditionally said to have been founded in 843, which joined with the Kingdom of England to form a unified Kingdom of Great Britain in 1707. Its territories expanded and shrank, but it came to occupy the northern third of the island of Great Britain , sharing a land border to the south with the Kingdom of England . It suffered many invasions by the English, but under Robert I it fought a successful war of independence and remained a distinct state in the late Middle Ages. In 1603, James VI of Scotland became King of England , joining Scotland with England in a personal union . In 1707, the two kingdoms were united to form the Kingdom of Great Britain under the terms of the Acts of Union
