  • English Absolutism by Josh Belcher
  • One evening in 17th century England...
  • Oliver Cromwell, the ruler of England, passed away due to natural causes.
  • Many were opposed to Cromwell's commonwealth style of government, so they supported Charles II as their new ruler.
  • Charles II!
  • At first his reign seemed promising. He followed the Magna Carta and Petition of Right, allowed a certain degree of religious toleration, and other actions.
  • Tories
  • However, once he began ruling in an absolute manner similar to Louis XIV, many became doubtful. Soon, two factions formed, the Tories (supporters) and the Whigs (opposers).
  • Whigs
