  • After King Charles I was executed on January 30, 1649 the Parliament of Scotland proclaimed Charles II king on February 5, 1649. England was known as a de facto republic, led by Oliver Cromwell. Cromwell defeated Charles II at the battle of Worcester on September 3 ,1651 and Charles fled to Europe. Cromwell became dictator of England.  A political crisis followed the death of Cromwell in 1658 resulted in the restoration of the monarchy and Charles was invited to return to Britain.
  • The King is dead
  • Now his son is KING
  • Off with he`s head
  • On May 29th 1660, his 30th birthday he was received in London to public acclaim. After 1660, all legal documents were dated as if he had succeed his father as king in 1649. England was Happy, King Charles II was nothing like his father and he left parliament alone to do what they needed to as long as he could have his parties. Glory days were restored in England.
  • Thank you , Thank You its good to be home
  • Its party time
  • Welcome Home King Charles II
  • Charles II died, came James II. He was not relaxed. James II was Catholic. He made lots of laws that helped Catholics get more power in England. Parliament didn't like this, because they were mostly Protestant, Just like Charles I, he dismissed Parliament. Parliament came up with a way to expel James II WITHOUT another Civil War. they just needed to find someone who was family with James II, but Catholic. They found Mary, his daughter. Mary was living in Holland.
  • We miss King Charles II... Lets send a message to the kings daughter Mary in Holland
  • My name is King James II and I am catholic and since your parliament is protestants. The parliament is dismissed. I am KING
  • Mary and her husband William invaded England. James II knew he was going to lose the fight so fled to France and lived there in exile for the rest of his life. William and Mary became king and queen . No more kings and no more messing with parliament...This is called The Glorious Revolution. It was bloodless. England got its Protestant kings and its Constitutional Monarchy without another war. Parliament is now the big power in England, not just the king.
