Charles I (born 19 Nov. 1600, Dunfermline Palace, Fife, Scot.—died 1 Jan. 30, 1649, London, England), King of Great Britain and Ireland (1625-1649). The son of James I, he received from his father a confirmation of the divine right of kings, and his first surviving letters reveal the distrust of the House of Commons. He became king in 1625 and shortly after married Henrietta Maria.
He entered his first parliament because of religious issues, his war against Spain, and a general distrust of his adviser the 1st Duke of Buckingham. After dissolving several successive parliaments, Charles ruled his kingdom for 11 years without calling a parliament.
Abbott graduated from Bowdoin College in 1820. At some point in his life, he is said to have added a second “t” to his surname, to avoid being “Jacob Abbot the 3rd” (although (the book says he wasn’t).actually started signing his name with two t’s until he many years later).
Abbott studied at Andover Theological Seminary in 1821, 1822, and 1824. He taught at Portland Academy and then at Amherst College the following year.
