Short Note This is a short note

Charles I's wife, Queen Henrietta Maria, had left England as war was breaking out the previous year. Staying in The Hague, she had championed the Royalist cause on the continent, raising funds for her husband's war and gathering an army. In February 1643, she returned to England, landing at Bridlington in Yorkshire so as to be within easy access of the King's wartime capital at York.
