Charles I of New Britannia was the fourth Monarch of New Britannia. The second son and third child of Henry I Arevin, Charles was viewed by many as the eventual successor of either his father or his brother, William I. Charles would ultimately grow up to view himself as a figure superior to all others, envisioning himself as the architect of a golden age. When New Britannia was invaded, Charles fled to the palace of Logan de Monte, 5th Duke of Lexium, where he remained until the end of the war. Upon returning to Arevad, he was deeply unpopular with both the nobility and the people for his cowardice and earned further scorn with the lower classes for forcing several commoners that owned land to sell it to him at an measly price. When his brother succeeded to the throne, Charles forced his way into the status of regent and ruled with an iron fist. Upon his brother's death, he became King of New Britannia and attempted to rename it Charlestia, though was met with such a high level of disapproval that he abandoned the attempt. As his reign progressed, he ordered several activists opposing his policies to be publicly humiliated, tortured and executed. Continuing with such actions, by 55 1ENB, a full scale rebellion against his rule, led by the aging Duke of Kingstone, Robert Delmade, was in full swing. Within a year he was deposed and was forced to abdicate in favor of his brother, James I. He would be kept alive for a few months, but upon his brother's death in 57 1EBC, he would be murdered to prevent him from asserting any claim to the throne.
