On the other hand, the clans from the west of Scotland could not be persuaded to fight for long away from their homes — seeing their principal enemy as the Campbells rather than the Covenanters. Scotland, the third separate kingdom, was governed by the House of Stewart, and the three kingdoms were united under the same monarch when King James VI of Scotland succeeded Elizabeth to the English throne in The new liturgy had been devised by a panel of Scottish bishops, including Archbishop Spottiswoode of St. They did, and a series of Royalist revolts erupted through England as well throughout

    This string of battles showed the dangers of sending half-trained, or even untrained, troops into battle and resulted in giving Montrose temporary control over almost all of Scotland. In he held a General Assembly and pushed through Five Articles of Episcopalian practices, which were widely boycotted. He was forced to surrender his public office as lord high admiral as he would not take the oath. With some slight modifications it was approved by the Westminster Assembly of Divines.

    With the death of the Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell inthe Commonwealth fell into a period of instability. For some Covenanters even William of Orange was an "uncovenanted" King since he was head of the Church of England which was an episcopal church. While the Wars of the Three Kingdoms pre-figured many of the changes that would shape modern Britain, in the short term they resolved little.

It ended in when the English army occupying Scotland marched south under the command of General George Monckseized control of London, and, with the agreement of the English civilian establishment, invited Charles II to return to the Three Kingdoms as king an event known as the Restoration.

In response to the attack on his clansmen, Archibald Campbell, 1st Marquess of Argyll assembled the Campbell clansmen to repel the invaders.

All rights reserved. An Irish and Royalist army attacked Dublin but was routed, and Civil War and Restoration in the 3 Stuart Kingdoms book dispatched star performer Oliver Cromwell to see to matters.

This significantly weakened the Scottish army in England and it was only the lack of Royalist infantry and artillery in the north of England that prevented Prince Rupert from attacking them.

However, lawlessness remained a problem, with bandits known as mosstroopersvery often former Royalist or Covenanter soldiers, plundering both the English troops and the civilian population. The King beheaded. However, the issues that had caused the wars — religion, the power of Parliament and the relationship between the three kingdoms — remained unresolved, only postponed to re-emerge as matters fought over again in the Glorious Revolution of Monck, who had served Cromwell and the English Parliament Civil War and Restoration in the 3 Stuart Kingdoms book the civil wars, judged that his best interests and those of his country lay in the Restoration of Charles II.

Leading Scots were thus persuaded to agree to a union of the two kingdoms. The breach between the New Model Army and Parliament widened day by day until finally the Presbyterian party, combined with the Scots and the remaining Royalists, felt itself strong enough to begin a Second English Civil War.

In Scotland, the Royalists had a series of victories in —45, but were crushed with the end of the first English Civil War and the return of the main Covenanter armies to Scotland. The House of Commons was willing to vote the huge sums that the king needed to finance his war against the Scots, but not until their grievances—some dating back more than a decade—had been redressed.

The end of the war greatly eased the English government's near bankrupt financial state. The Grandees acted; soldiers were used to purge the English Parliament of those who opposed the Army.

The province was named after the King's father, Charles I. The Scottish Covenanters sent an army to Ulster in Ireland in to protect the Scottish settlers there. This significantly weakened the Scottish army in England and it was only the lack of Royalist infantry and artillery in the north of England that prevented Prince Rupert from attacking them.

The abuses charged to James included the suspension of the Test Actsthe prosecution of the Seven Bishops for merely petitioning the crown, the establishment of a standing army, and the imposition of cruel punishments.

A Scottish Covenanter army under the command of David Leslie had been shadowing his progress.

Bailie went in pursuit and Montrose waited for him at Kilsyth. Having broken a chain which the English had placed across the river, he attacked the naval dockyard at Chatham, burning and taking many ships.
