Information: The English Civil War (1642-1649) pitted the supporters of King Charles I against the supporters of the English Parliament. The war was principally over the manner in which England was governed and was fought in two parts. The first Civil War lasted from 1642 to 1646 and the second from 1648 to 1649. It ended with Parliamentarian victory and the execution of Charles I in 1649.
