Forces Collected

“It was here that Charles I collected his forces” (149).

During the English Civil War, Charles I used Oxford as a base for his court; his Parliament no longer supported his actions, and he left London to retreat to a place where he received more cooperation. Oxford University supported King Charles during the Civil War, but after the war when Oliver Cromwell became Chancellor of the University, Oxford suffers for assisting Charles I.
