Charles II (29 May 1630 – 6 February 1685), of the House of Stuart, was the King of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1660 until his death. He gained the throne after the collapse of the English Protectorate, over a decade after his father, Charles I of England, was overthrown and executed.

Charles' reign, known generally as the Restoration, was one of pomp and hedonism of the Court. While on the throne, Charles pursued policies of religious toleration for Catholics and dissenting Protestants with some little success. He himself converted to Catholicism on his death bed. Charles also oversaw two disasterous wars with the Netherlands, although England was able to push the Netherlands out of North America.

Charles had numerous mistresses and numerous children by them. However, he did not produce an heir with his wife, Catherine, so he was succeeded by his brother.

Charles II in Atlantis

It was during the reign of Charles II that the pirates of Avalon were destroyed by combined English, Dutch and Atlantean forces. A figurehead in the king's image was affixed to the Royal Sovereign, the flagship of William Radcliff's armada.[1]
