King Charles I ignored the petition of right and decided to rule by him self. This angered parliament and was more or less the starting point, prior to the First Civil War. This was called Eleven Years of Tyranny.
i shall ignore parliment and rule without them!
The scots however rebelled against Charles' ways and did not follow his religion. This led to him fighting The Bishops War.
11 years later
The king summoned up a 'Short Parliament' after the eleven years. They tried to get the king to listen to them. But Charles refused. The scots beat the English leaving a huge debt. The king had no choice but to now summon a 'long parliament'.
you can't argue with us. Just be reasonable and listen.
Ill do whatever i like thank you. Parliament dismissed.
