Fact of the Day: The King's Barber

When King Charles I was captured and sentenced to death for treason by Parliament, before he died they had dismissed his barber. King Charles I kept his beard long afterward as he trusted nobody else with a razor near him.

  5. Eventually he'd get a cut worse than any barber could inflict--he was beheaded.

  7. I think having a sharp razor near my throat would mean I would have trust issues also.
