Oliver Cromwell and the Rule of the Puritans in England by Charles H. Firth (1857 - 1936).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/oliver-cromwell-and-the-rule-of-the-puritans-in-england-by-charles-h-firth/
The Life of Cromwell is in part based on an article contributed by the author to the Dictionary of National Biography in 1888, but embodies the result of later researches, and of recently discovered documents such as the Clarke Papers. The battle plans have been specially drawn for this volume by Mr. B. V. Darbishire, and in two cases differ considerably from those generally accepted as correct. The scheme of this series does not permit a discussion of the reasons why these alterations have been made, but the evidence concerning the battles in question has been carefully examined, and any divergence from received accounts is intentional. The reader who wishes to see this subject discussed at length is referred to a study of the battle of Marston Moor printed in Volume XII. of the Transactions of the Royal Historical Society (new series), and to a similar paper on Dunbar which will appear in Volume XIV.

The quotations from Cromwell’s letters or speeches are, where necessary, freely abridged. ( C.H. Firth)

Question on the reading.

My understanding is that Charles I should be read as Charles One and Henry VIII read as Henry The Eighth. Is this correct? Or is it read in the same pattern as Henry Eight?

He is usually known as Charles the First... but listeners would understand Charles One (the typical American way of saying it)

I need help asking specific questions! Is Henry The Eighth correct for Henry VIII or should I read it as Henry Eight?
