LATER ENGLISH CIVIL WAR ROYALIST

Historical Overview

The Royalist army from July 1643 to The Battle of Naseby in 1644.

Until now the war had been going pretty well for the Royalists,but it all went a bit pear-shaped (and started to look like a noose really) in the glorious heat of the late summer and early autumn of 1643, when the English Civil War Parliamentarian army of the Earl of Essex forced the king to raise the siege of Gloucester and then brushed the Royalist army aside at the First Battle of Newbury? on 20 September 1643. Other English Civil War Parliamentarian forces won the Battle of Winceby soon after, giving them control of Lincoln (lucky people..). Political manoeuvering to gain an advantage in numbers led Charles to negotiate a ceasefire in Ireland, freeing up English troops to fight on the Royalist side in England while Parliament offered concessions to the Scots in return for aid and assistance.

With the help of the Scots Parliament won the battle of Marston Moor? in July 1644, gaining York and the north of England. The Royalists recorded a victory away in the Cup at the Battle of Lostwithiel? in Cornwall, but Parliament continued to grind out away draws in the League to maintain their advantage, notably a dour 0-0 in and around Newbury on 27 October 1644.

Parliament used the 1944-5 transfer window well, and brought in the relative newcomer in the shape of the Self-denying Ordinance, by which all members of either House of Parliament laid down their commands and re-organized its main forces into the New Model Army under the command of Sir Thomas Fairfax. In two decisive engagements the Battle of Naseby on 14 June and the Battle of Langport? on 10 July the New Model Army effectively ended Charles' hopes of winning the league title.

Charles was eventually handed over to the English Parliament by the Scots and was imprisoned.
