Charles I was executed in 1649.  Ansteorrans do not usually seem perturbed by
Cavalier-type garb as long as firearms are generally avoided.  I personally
feel that by allowing a little leeway the SCA attracts more people and is less
likely to have splinter groups.  The SCA has not gained many members in Great
Britain; I think this is because Great Britain has a large number of narrowly
focused groups.  On the internet I have seen groups in Great Britain that
were limited to the Celts, to the Vikings, to the Norman Conquest, to
Elizabethan and Jacobean periods, etc.  I think there is strength in numbers,
and this helps sustain the SCA.
