Sample text

1691 3 October: Jacobite rebels in Ireland sign a peace treaty with King William III and II. 1694 28 December: George of Brunswick-Lüneburg (later King George I) divorces his wife, Sophia Dorothea of Celle, on grounds of adultery; Sophia is imprisoned for the rest of her life. Queen Mary II dies, leaving King William III and II to rule on his own for another eight years. 1701 12 June: The Act of Settlement—legislation designed to ensure that no Roman Catholic will ever wear the English crown—receives royal assent.

No queen had ever ruled England alone, and many at the royal court argued that a woman could not lead them in battle, which was then one of the chief requirements of a ruler. So, after Henry succumbed to food poisoning in 1135, some of the most powerful men in the realm turned to Stephen, the son of Adela, Henry’s sister. For 18 years, families were divided by conflict as King Stephen’s armies struggled with those who believed Matilda was the rightful sovereign, but eventually, in 1153, Matilda’s son, Henry (later King Henry II), won a promise that he would succeed to the throne on Stephen’s death.

His marriage to a French princess, Henrietta Maria, only months after his accession caused initial concern because it raised the prospect of Roman Catholics following him on the throne. Attempts to introduce more ceremony into the services of the Church of England simply added to the worries. He also needed funds to pursue war on the European mainland, and, war being expensive, parliament was unwilling to give him what he wanted. Believing that he had a divine right to exercise authority and that his subjects should obey even if they fundamentally disagreed with a command, he dismissed parliament altogether in 1629 and for the next 11 years ruled as an autocrat, attempting to raise funds without parliament’s approval.
