The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (very closely related to the English Toy Spaniel) was officially recognized in Great Britain in 1945, and is derived from the standard King Charles Spaniel.  The Cavalier is distinguished from the King Charles by a flatter skull and longer muzzle.  The Cavalier's eyes are not as prominent, and its ears are set higher.  It has also recovered its hunting instincts and is taller and somewhat heavier than the King Charles.
