He became a Roman Catholic, although professing to be a Protestant; and, when dying from a stroke of apoplexy, Feb. 6, 1685, he confessed to a Roman Catholic priest, and received extremRoman Catholic priest, and received extreme unction. The throne descended to his brother James, an avowed Roman Catholic. See James ii. In March, 1663, Charles ii. granted to several of his courtiers the vast domain of the Carolinas in America.

As the fortunes of his father waned, his mother returned to France, where the son joined her; and, at the Hague, he heard of the death of his parent by the axe, when he assumed the title of King, and was proclaimed such at Edinburgh, Feb. 3, 1649. He was crowned at Scone, Scotland, Jan. 1, 1651.

Then, tossing the little pet to Clarendon, he said, There, Hyde, is a worthy prelate; make him archbishop of the domain I shall give you. With grim satire, Charles introduced into the preamble of their charter that the petitioners, excited with a laudable and pious zeal for the propagation of the Gospel, have begged a certain country in the parts of America not yet cultivated and planted, and only inhabited by some barbarous people who have no knowledge of God. See State of North Carolina; State of South Carolina.
