The English Civil War was vastly complex in origins - with high taxation, religious issues, the rise of the middle class and Charles I's obstinate adherence to the 'Divine Right of Kings' amongst the triggers - the war involved the British Isles in the most terrible internecine carnage for some years, pitting father against son, brother against brother and friend against friend. These dramatic events saw not only the execution of a king, by his own people but the rise of the outstanding leader Oliver Cromwell who replaced Charles I as supreme leader.
