Dear William and Mary of Orange, Please save us. We'll put you in power. Please. Thanks, Whigs
While their takeover was known as the Glorious Revolution, some bloodshed was involved.
England is ours!
James II has fled!
Following Cromwell's death, England reinstated Charles II as a limited monarch. However, Charles II attempted to turn England into an absolutist nation; dividing Parliament into two factions. After Charles' death, his brother James II became king. James II attempted to return Catholicism to England and furthered resentment towards the monarch. After James II "found" an heir, Whigs in Parliament requested that William and Mary of Orange come to England and take over. The conflict that ensued came to be known as the Glorious Revolution and ended with William and Mary on the throne.
