English civil war
Also known as: Great Rebellion
Also known as: English Revolution
Date event started: 0000-00-00
Date event ended: 0000-00-00
Short summary War broke out less than fifty years after the death of Elizabeth I in 1603. Before the fighting, the Parliament of England did not have a large permanent role in the English system of government, functioning as a temporary advisory committee, summoned by the monarch whenever the Crown required additional tax revenue, and subject to dissolution by the monarch at any time. A series of armed conflicts between parliament supporters and royalists. Three civil wars happened during the reign of Charles I and Charles II, and lead to strengthening of the parliament system. Constitutionally, the wars established the precedent that an English monarch cannot govern without Parliament's consent, although this concept was legally established only with the Glorious Revolution later in the century. It is sometimes called the English revolution since it changed the fundamental government structure of Britain forever.
