Thomas Wentworth, 1st Earl of Strafford in an Armour, 1639, by Sir Anthony van Dyck.
Strafford ignored Charles's promise that no colonists should be forced into Connaught, and in 1635 he raked up an obsolete title—the grant in the 14th century of Connaught to Lionel of Antwerp, whose heir Charles was—and insisted upon the grand juries finding verdicts for the king.
However tyrannical Strafford's earlier conduct may have been, his offence was outside the definition of high treason; the copy of rough notes of Strafford's speech in the committee of the council, its authenticity not supported by councillors who had been present on the occasion, was not evidence which would convict in a court of law.

 Lucy Hay, Countess of Carlisle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A contemporary scandal made her the mistress successively of Thomas Wentworth, the 1st Earl of Strafford, and of John Pym, his parliamentary opponent.
Strafford valued her highly, but after his death, possibly in consequence of a revulsion of feeling at his abandonment by the court, she devoted herself to Pym and to the interests of the parliamentary leaders, to whom she communicated the king's most secret plans and counsels.
Her greatest achievement was the timely disclosure to Robert Devereux, the 3rd Earl of Essex, of the king's intended arrest of the five members, which enabled the latter to escape.

Thomas Wentworth, Earl of Strafford (April 13, 1593 - May 12, 1641) was an English statesman, a major figure in the period leading up to the English Civil War.
Strafford ignored Charles's promise that no colonists should be forced into Connaught, and in 1635 he raked up an obsolete title--the grant in the 14th century of Connaught to Lionel of Antwerp, whose heir Charles was--and insisted upon the grand juries finding verdicts for the king.
Wentworth had served Charles with what the king felt was a massive degree of loyalty, and Charles had a serious problem with signing Wentworth's death warrant as a matter of conscience.
