Charles dissolves Parliament when it tries to expand powers to deal with an economic crisis. The Parliament of 1628 produces the Petition of Right. This document prohibited the king from 1. raising taxes without the consent of Parliament, 2. imprisoning subjects without due cause, 3. housing soldiers in private homes, 4. imposing martial law in peacetime. Charles did sign the petition but then dissolved Parliament in 1629 for 11 years. During this time, he ignored the promises made in the petition and ruled the nation without Parliament.
