How many of Charles 1st Scottish Stewart Kingly predecesoors died with their boots off in bed?-precious few.
One was killed when one of his cannons exploded; another was murdered by rebelliious nobles; one was slaughtered at Flodden. Mary Queen of Scots was beheaded.
Charles's weakness and vanity were part of the genetic territory of the Scottish Stewart monarchs.
A tricky country to govern Pedennis, overmighty subjects were aye a problem for the Stewarts/Stuarts, James VI though claimed that he did with his pen what his ancestors couldn't manage with the sword.
Charles was a bit of a hothouse plant, his brother Henry, named after Darnley? (who was a pillock par excellence) was more in the swashbuckling mode, his early death left Charles king.
Ye know yersel, Fifers are aye trouble!
