Revolution v. Civil War


revolution v. Civil War

single ruler for the first time, and James I and VI, as he now became, entered upon his unique inheritance. Top Catholic succession William III, by Sir Godfrey Kneller James II at once made it plain that he was determined to improve the lot of his Catholic subjects, and many began to suspect that his ultimate aim was to restore England to the Catholic fold. Later that year, Charles invaded England with a Scottish army, but was defeated by Cromwell at Worcester. In May 1660, Charles II entered London in triumph. Similar fears were abroad in Scotland, and when Charles attempted to introduce a new prayer book to that country in 1637 he provoked furious resistance. Nevertheless, the king was a cunning political operator and when he died in 1685 the position of the Stuart monarchy seemed secure. Meanwhile, Charles I's eldest son had come to an agreement with the Scots and in January 1651 had been crowned as Charles II of Scotland. In 1665 London was devastated by the plague, while a year later much of the capital was destroyed in the Great Fire of London.

Civil Wars Causes
What Was the Cold War?

After Richard Cromwell's resignation, the republic slowly fell apart and Charles II was eventually invited to resume his father's throne. James promptly returned to France, leaving William free to consolidate his hold on power. James II fled to France a few weeks later and William and Mary were crowned as joint monarchs the following year. The early years of the new king's reign were scarcely glorious ones. The discovery of the Gunpowder Plot served as a warning to James, if any were needed, of the very grave dangers religious divisions could pose, both to his own person and to the stability of his triple crown. Henceforth England and Scotland officially became one country, and when Queen Anne, the last of the Stuart monarchs, died in 1714, it was to the throne of the United Kingdom of Great Britain that George I, the first of the Hanoverians, succeeded. Cromwell died in 1658 and was succeeded as protector by his son, Richard, but Richard had little aptitude for the part he was now called upon to play and abdicated eight months later. The birth of James's son in 1688 made matters even worse since it forced anxious Protestants to confront the fact that their Catholic king now had a male heir. In 1653, Cromwell was installed as 'lord protector' of the new Commonwealth of England, Scotland and Ireland.
