All right, fine - but did he really deserve decapitation?

The votes are in from our scholarly opinion poll. Apparently our readership favours puritans. (Who knew?)
Of 22 who weighed in:

14 (66%!) thought Charles I bore the brunt of the responsibility for the Civil War.

About one quarter (5 - 23%) believed responsibility was shared between him and the puritan/parliamentary party.

2 (9%) thought there were other causes worth discussing.

And none of you–no one!– felt the puritan/parliament were most responsible.
