JOINT CRISIS: GLORIOUS REVOLUTION OF 1688
The year is 1688 and the English king is the Catholic King James II, brother of Charles II, who was reinstated as king twenty-eight years ago following the restoration of the monarchy. Relations between Catholics and Protestants are tense, and there is considerable friction between the monarchy and the British Parliament. The rightful heir to the throne is Mary, the king’s protestant daughter and the wife of William of Orange, Prince of Orange. This is until King James has a son, James Francis Edward Stuart, whom he announces will be raised as a catholic. The king’s elevation of Catholicism, his close relationship with France, his conflict with Parliament and uncertainty over who will succeed James on the English throne lead to whispers of a revolt – and ultimately the possible fall of James II.
