KS3 The Glorious Revolution Resources

The late 17th century was a time of political upheaval in British history. The reign of Charles II brought with it the restoration of the monarchy, following Oliver Cromwell’s rule of the Republic as Lord Protector. Following the death of Charles II, he was succeeded by his brother James II and VII. Trouble was, he was a Catholic and wanted to relax ani-Catholic laws. He also believed in the divine right of kings and absolutism, which put him at odds with Parliament. In order to avoid yet another civil war, Parliament invited William of Orange, a Protestant married to Mary II, to rule the nation. Although initially against an invasion, William changed his mind and successfully deposed James II and VII. This brought James’ nearly four-year reign to an end.
