Cromwell

Cromwell (1970)

1 corrected entry

Corrected entry: In the arraignment scene where Cromwell charges King Charles with treason, he refers to him as "King Charles the FIRST". This title would only be used retroactively, as it pre-supposes that there was a successor also named Charles. e.g.Queen Victoria was not known as Queen Victoria the FIRST.

Correction: She most certainly was, just as the first Queen Elizabeth was referred to as Queen Elizabeth the First during her reign - and just as Charles was referred to as King Charles the First during his reign. Do you think that having had eight King Henries they hadn't worked out the rules of succession by the time someone called Charles got to the throne?
