  • oh no...
  • Why do you allow this  horrible king to do anything he wants?! You Cavaliers!
  • Why would you fight against our holy king?! You Roundheads!
  • Hahaha! We now have a miltary dictatorship!
  • James the first became king after Queen Elizabeth Tudor died. He believed in the Divine Rights of Kings, which began tension with the Parliament.
  • I have no support!
  • The supporters of the King called the Cavaliers disagree with the supporters of Parliament called the Roundheads, causing the beginning of the Civil War in 1642.
  • After the new leader Oliver Cromwell defeats the Cavaliers and beheads King Charles, he sets up a military dictatorship. After the death of Oliver Cromwell, England's monarchy is restored.
  • Bill of Rights
  • James the second was an openly Catholic monarch, which Parliament was uneasy about, and encouraged William of Orange too take over. After the beginning of the revolution, James fled once he realized he had little support.
  • At the end of the revolution in 1689, William and Mary of the Netherlands become the rulers of England when they are offered the throne.
  • The Monarchy and the Parliament ruled together, and abolished the Divine Rights of Kings theory. William and Mary also created the Bill of Rights, the foundation for constitutional monarchy.
