Charles I lacked what we call "leadership quality", such as diplomatic skills, interpersonal skills, right connections, ability to balance or choose side.Whether they are Flunkies or A Students, I agree. Saying it was Laud and not Charles is like saying it was Himmler and not Hitler.
Charles is just another king. He miscalculated and ended up on the losing side. Is that what makes a king "bad?"
Any of them will lie, steal and kill. Does that makes a king a "bad" person?
