Merry King Charles Stuart II: The Black King of England – Oguejiofo Annu

The word Stuart comes from the old nordish root Svart which means black. Stuart is the same word as Swarthy, which means black in old English.

There was once a Stuart line of Kings in England. The name of the founding ancestor was Stuart which means Black man.

In this post, we feature the original painting of one of the Stuart Kings of England and Scotland, King Charles II, also lovingly known as the “black boy” of England by his subjects.

He is commemorated in the celebrated name of the Black Boy Inn, found all over the British Isle.

King Charles II was a black man. Many of his surviving paintings falsely depict him as a so-called white man in clear contradiction to the famous description of the jolly King.

However, in the picture posted immediately below, one can see one of the contemporary paintings of King Charles Stuart II, Merry Black Boy of England. This picture invites all to decide why King Charles Stuart II, would have been called the black boy.

King Charles Stuart II 1630 – 1685

The eldest surviving son of Charles I and Henrietta Maria of France, daughter of Henry IV of France, the future Charles II was born on 29th May, 1630, at St. James Palace, London, the second child of the marriage, he replaced an elder brother, Charles James, who had died shortly after birth.

It was said that when Charles was born in 1630 he was nicknamed the Black Boy by his mother, Queen Henrietta Maria, because of his dark and swarthy appearance

In 1646, following political crisis, his father Charles I was overthrown by Oliver Cromwell and beheaded. Charles II had to flee for his life through Scotland and on to France after making a weak and symbolic attempt at regaining the Stuart title. Fate and reality had soon dawned on him. He settled into a life of penury in France.

Upon the death of Oliver Cromwell, Charles was recalled back to England by Cromwell’s legatee and son who had no interest in ruling England. Charles was restored back to the throne and his coronation took place at the traditional venue of Westminster Abbey on 23rd April, 1661.

The Merry Monarch as he was later to become known, is famous for his many mistresses. Although he had numerous children by his mistresses, the Queen, to her great sadness, remained barren.

Charles popularity with the people was solid. Despite the ravages of last great outbreak of the Bubonic Plague struck London in 1665, which claimed thousands of lives; and the great fire of London 1666 which completely destroyed the city, he was highly favoured by the people.

He died without an official heir on 6 February, 1685 after a brief illness and was succeeded by his brother, King James II. He was the most beloved of all the Kings in the line of the Stuarts.

Black King of England

According to the annals of the english monarch:

Charles’ appearance was anything but English, with his sensuous curling mouth, dark complexion, black hair and dark brown eyes, he much resembled his Italian maternal grandmother, Marie de Medici’s side of the family. During his escape after the Battle of Worcester, he was referred to as ‘a tall, black man’ in parliamentary wanted posters.

One of the nick-names he acquired was the black boy His height, at six feet two inches, probably inherited from his Danish paternal grandmother, Anne of Denmark, also set him apart from his contemporaries in a time when the average Englishman was far smaller than today.

English Pubs

All English pubs named the Black boy are named after Charles II due to the swarthy and dark colour of his complexion.

Modern European painters try to hide the racial identity of this jolly King by depicting such fantasy as is posted below:

  2. I truly believe that the Stuarts did support slavery and the killing of the Native American as, slavery and the mass killings in America were during the King James Wars. Research the “The King James Period/1600s”.

  3. (1) There’s none more righteous than the newly converted.
    (2) Anyone using Wikipedia as a source is a Wikipedia scholar-and that is not a compliment.
    (3) It is laughable that anyone would believe that Jesus ever existed-so arguing about his race is ludicrous.
    (4) There is only one so called race, and that is the so called black race; All so called races are mutations of the so called black race.
    (5) SOME, Caucasian, so called scholars throughout history have and continue to whitewash the so called black race from being the originators of civilization. Caucasians were not the vanguard of civilization.
    (6) Hebrews did not rule Africa(Alkebulan). The so called black race were/are Hebrews, Moors, and too many to list other things throughout history-and obviously continuing to this date and beyond. It is beyond ridiculous to say that so called black people in America and the Americas are only Hebrews or Moors. Yes, some are Hebrews, some are Moors, and as was stated before -others came before Columbus as explorers and of course others were brought as enslaved people, not slaves -there’s a big difference. There is no group of so called black people that is superior to the other.
    (7) There is not such thing as Black or White history. There is only the truth.

    1. Well said by Truthspeaker, thank you for that information, I really needed to read that, and thank you again.

    2. Is there a book or reference material which explains the presence and fall of the black Kings of Europe? This explains the history of racism directed at blacks for centuries taught by elders to generation to generation.

    3. Well said, I do believe the black race are earth’s Indigenous people of earth. The white people came from another galaxy. The bible backs this up with bright lights in the sky and winged people descending on light beams, also rising from the dead, and don’t forget virgin births. Water in to wine. The Bible points to heaven and religion always looks skywards. Why? ?

  4. Hello all,
    I’m very pleased to join the forum. interesting posts and I’ve read them all. However, they’ve raised a number of questions I am hoping I could get some answers to.

    1. Were the Babylonians, Persians, Parthians, Phoenicians black?
    2. Was the Islamic Prophet Mohammed black?
    3. How did the Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Indians, Arabs etc come about?
    4. Does anyone know how long after the flood before things went back to normal?
    5. If the answer to number 1 is yes. Does anyone know when the people who say they’re Arabs, Persians etc settled in the middle east?
    6. I have heard it said that “you are what you’re father is”. Is there a biblical reference for this? And I take it that this means that irrespective of the fact that you might look black, if your father is white then you are also white. Is this assumption correct?
    7. Was James I a black Hebrew Israelite or was he just a black King?
    8. The portrayal of King James I as white began in what year?
    9. I think I read in one of the posts (not a 100%sure) that the Moors conquered Scotland, Ireland, England and several other northern European nations (outside of Spain and Portugal), could anyone say when this happened?
    10. I’ve read several times that the white race are descended from the Edomites, who are in turn descended from Esau. But I’ve also seen posts talking about whites being the descendants of Neanderthals and yet others saying they are the descendants of albinos or lepers. Is there a definitive answer on how they came about?
    Thanks everyone, really appreciate all the information.

  5. Logic and reason..Most of ur answers are going to surround groups of our ancestors who are “MIXED”. Per Biblical and Quaranic Scriptires, not to mention Secular History..the first group of God’s Children were Pure Black/Brown, from the area referred to as Africa and the MiddleEast/Asia/India/Australia/ any surrounding Islands/N.America and S.America (Southern parts) and Southern Europe. These places were grouped 2gether as “Gondwanaland,” “Pangea,” “The MOTHERLAND,” “The Orient,” etc.., however, the bottomline is that the land housed our Brothas and Sistas (BLACK-BROWN SKINNED). Once we began going against God and not only Sinning but Commiting Abominations, some of the tribes were afflicted with Leprosy..per scripture (the B.C.’s). Those groups procreated with Black/Brown and Mixed (Leprous) groups..making all types of different shades. These mixed groups of our ancestors have had numerous names over the last 2000+ years. Canaanites, Arabs, Spaniards, Indians, Asians, Hispanics, Mullatos, etc..However, there is one group that is much more ruthless than ANY other. It is the lineage asssociated with the Goths, the Germans, the Brits, the Scots, The Irish, etc..They are said to have had the greatest amount of Original Blood sexed out, purposely. They believe in the Occult and are said to have procreated with Reptillians, Giants, Satan himself, etc. I don’t worry about that as much as I worry about doing what God put me here to do. I DO study as much History as I can so I won’t fall 4 the same OkeyDoke my ancestors fell 4. I realize that I too, an African American, am somewhat “MIXED”, though, I kept much of my Original, Israelite, Ancestor’s Blood (thank you God). I believe in the One and Only God that is in the same image as me and my Original Brothas and Sistas, from The Motherland. I believe that even though Muhammad was important in the Muslim religion, there is only ONE Messenger, and his name is YESHUA. I believe my Brotha, Yeshua, walked the earth and was able 2 do EXACTLY what our Father asked of us. I believe he was Brown – Skinned and in the same Image as our Father, as well. I also believe Satan is trying his hardest 2 destroy God’s Creation, which happens 2 be “Us”, and everything God has Blesed us with. I believe he is using that ruthless group of Marked Pagans/Lepers/whatever they are called this Era, to help with our demise. It is becoming harder and harder 2 distinguish who is whom. Therefore, I will do anything in my power 2 stay on the Path God has laid out 4 me. I would suggest that you Google search what ever other questions you have and then research as many sites you have time 2 research, in order 2 get as much info “pro and con”, as possible. I have GOBS of info and I have written it all down. If u want more of what I’ve spent 20+ years studying, visit my Blog “” God Bless you and I hope u find all answers that you seek.
