Charles was patently different from his father in temperament and in his approach to the task of kingship. James showed more political nous and judgment when dealing with Parliament; he exercised a more sensitive control of the art. Unlike James though, Charles had moved away from Calvinism and was committed to an Arminian position. Charles’s first demand in Wales for men and money to meet the challenge of the Catholic powers was readily met. Throughout the years of personal rule, it had been essential for Charles to avoid the danger of warfare. At the first sign of any major emergency necessitating the summons of Parliament, much of the latent opposition to him was bound to burst into the open.
