Thomas Wentworth - The First Earl of Strafford

Published by John Tarttelin
A brief history of the life and career of Thomas Wentworth, the First Earl of Strafford who was the chief minister of King Charles Ist. Strafford was the power behind the throne of Charles, a weak-willed and vascillating monarch if ever there was one. Strafford was beheaded in 1641 as other powerful nobles and members of the House of Commons saw him as a personal threat. With Strafford's support, Charles might have been able to continue with his controversial personal rule, without Parliament. However, his execution was the precursor of the English Civil War - he was the only man powerful enough to have stopped it.
