Also, about his rule with parliament. After he dissolved parliament for the 3rd time he ran without it for 11 years and this is where things started to go down hill for him and his ruling. In total Charles dissolved parliament 4 times due to his belief that what he says goes and no one could object to his decisions, this is what led him to disband parliament and to fly solo for a while.
Another thing Charles liked to do was fight parliament because Charles was a crazy old king who thought he and only he had power. Which was completely wrong as parliament made there own army which was better than Charles's and had better funding to. Long story short Charles lost the war and was forced to sign a death warrant then fled to Scotland on the island of Wight. Scotland held him for ransom which is when England got Charles back and put him on trial.
The initial constitution settlement was worked out in 1689 in the English bill of rights. This was that the toleration act and the mutiny act witch made the monarchs respect parliament and parliaments laws. Fiscal laws were to stop the monarch from the authority of collecting taxes for life. By the end of the war in 1697 the fiscal laws were largely in place
Will and Mary: Will and Mary were heroes of parliament. The reason for this is that they weren't to hard on religion also they applied the fiscal laws which allows parliament more say in how things are which makes this a very democratic ruling
