Charles I and his Roundheads….?

Charles I, after Sir Anthony van Dyck

Um, spot the bloopers in this article.

These are the two I came upon, and I’m afraid I didn’t read the rest of the article.

  • “….An already very unpopular Charles I and his Roundheads were defeated during the English Civil War in 1645 by the Parliamentarians (Puritans), led by Oliver Cromwell….”
  • Oliver Cromwell “ceased” control of the kingdom.

As far as I recall Charles I had the Royalist/Cavaliers on his side, and the only time Cromwell “ceased” control of the kingdom was when he turned up his toes!
