I have the Divine Right of Kings! God has given me the power rule as I wish! I will not hear of this nonsense!!
Parliament and the king should work together! The way you rule is unfair to the people, you throw people in jail for no reason!
We're winning!! The roundheads are actually winning!
Too bad, so sad. Farewell Charles, no one will miss you.
No! Please, I'll do anything you want, just please don't kill me!
Charles I and Parliament argue over many things, particularly money, religion and power. King Charles I claims that he has the Divine Right Of Kings, meaning that God gave him the power to rule however he pleases.
Heyyy I know we killed your father and all that, but Cromwell died a couple years ago and no one can take his place. Would you mind taking back the crown??
Hey bro! After you die I get to be the king!
The conflict between Parliament and the King escalates to Civil War. Cavaliers (King) and Roundheads (Parliament) go head to head in this very bloody war. Oliver Cromwell and his New Model Army for the parliament are victorious.
I must get my belongings to my carriage!
I have to leave! There's no way I'd ever win this war and I don't want to die like my father!
I overthrew my father for this. Is it really going to be worth it?
Cromwell publicly executes Charles I , thus ending the war. Cromwell sets up a commonwealth at first and then later a military dictatorship. He rules until his death in 1658.
Thank you so much for actually working with Parliament. You have no idea how long it took to find a monarch who would.
Bill Of Rights
Of course! Now let's sign this Bill of Rights thing.
Cromwell's son fails to take his place as dictator. The army restores the monarchy with Charles II. Everything is going okay until Charles II dies and his brother James II becomes king. Conflict between the King and Parliament starts again.
English nobles encourage William of Orange and his wife Mary (James II's daughter) to invade and take the crown. James II flees when he realizes he has very little support. The revolution was won with almost no bloodshed.
William of Orange and Mary are crowned King and Queen. The Bill of Rights was signed and laid rights for a constitutional monarchy. Monarchy and Parliament finally rule together.
