Also known as: Glorious Revolution
Date event started: 0000-00-00
Date event ended: 0000-00-00
Short summary A continuation of the English civil war, which established the power of parliament. This war, fought with English parliamentarians and the help of Dutch government, overthrow the reign of King James II, who is a staunch catholic. Religiously, this war was to prevent the establishment of Roman Catholic dynasty. It ended all attempts by England in the Anglo-Dutch Wars of the 17th century to subdue the Dutch Republic by military force. However, the resulting economic integration and military co-operation between the English and Dutch Navies shifted the dominance in world trade from the Dutch Republic to England and later to Great Britain. King Charles II, who dies in 1685, was succeed by his brother James II. King Charles II is depicted in a BBC movie titled The Last King. England has always been ruled by protestants and no king of England has ever ruled without a parliament again.
