The Glorious Revolution (Elise Price)
After King James II had his first son, many people in England were afraid of having another Catholic ruler. This is was sparked the Glorious Revolution, also recognized as the Bloodless Revolution. Before the arrival of his son, King James II's next successor was his daughter Mary who was married to William of Orange. They were both protestant, so many people in England who were protestant were glad to anticipate a protestant ruler in the future. When King James II's son was born, he became the next in line to thrown, which worried many people. After this, a group of noble Englishmen later called the Immortal Seven invited William of Orange to build and army with their support and take the thrown. They sail to England with many men but do not engage. The army avoided confrontation and soon Protestant mobs stormed through England. This caused James II to flee, leaving England to Mary and William of Orange. After they were crowned, they passed the bill of rights, which ended the chance of absolute monarchy and banned catholics from the thrown.
