Storyboard Text

  • Prince William  had been laying careful plans over a number of months for an invasion, which he hoped to execute in September 1688. William would not invade England without assurances of English support, and so in April, he asked for a formal invitation to be issued by a group of leading English statesmen.
  • A man named Gilbert Burnet recorded a conversation at the end of April between William and Admiral Edward Russell: So Russell put the Prince to explain himself what he intended to do. The Prince answered, that, if he was invited by some men of the best interest, and the most valued in the nation, who should both in their own name, and in the name of others who trusted them, invite him to come and rescue the nation and the religion, he believed he could be ready by the end of September to come over.
  • The Immortal Seven (who consisted of one bishop and six nobles) decided to comply, with the letter to William dated 18 June (Julian calendar),reaching him in The Hague on 30 June, and dispatched by Rear Admiral Herbert, disguised as a common sailor. The Seven consisted of Lord Shrewsbury, Lord Devonshire, Lord Danby, Lord Lumley, Henry Compton, Edward Russell, and Henry Sydney. 
  • William marched to London and met other protestants who supported him on the way.
  • I am both for and against William. I support William because he is trying to keep his part of his religion strong by making England a Protestant country again. I oppose William because he is affecting the Catholics by making England a Protestant country again.
  • I think William would be good news depending on your religion like I said earlier.
