When the war finally started the two sides were army of the King and the army of Parliament.

The army of the King had the nickname the cavaliers and the army of parliament had the nickname the Roundheads. In charge of the Kings army was Charles and in charge of parliaments army was Oliver Cromwell.

There were thousands of soldiers in both armies and they had their first fight at a place called Edge Hill. The soldiers of the King were much better than the soldiers of Parliament and so the King and his soldiers won easily.
