Why did the English Civil War begin ?
The English Civil War of the mid-17th
Century was part of a wider series of conflicts that spanned the entire
British Isles, involving Scotland and Ireland as well as England and
Wales. Also called “The Great Rebellion”, “The English Revolution” and
“The Wars of the Three Kingdoms”, the British Civil Wars and
Commonwealth period witnessed the trial and execution of a king, the
formation of a republic in England, a theocracy in Scotland and the
subjugation of Ireland. The first attempt was made to unite the three
nations under a single government, and the foundations of the modern
British constitution were laid.
From the signing of the Scottish National Covenant of 1638 to
the Restoration of the Monarchy in 1660, this site explores the turmoil
of the Civil Wars and Interregnum, and the constitutional experiments
of the Commonwealth and Protectorate period of the 1650s.
