Back to Owlbut's History of England

The Timeline. Owlbut's Hoots. The Story.

The Stuarts, who, thanks to Henry VII marrying his daughter to a Scottish prince, had a legitimate claim to the English throne. What a time. We have people trying to blow up the king, a king trying to rule without parliament, a civil war and a king without his head and finally a country without a king. Then, a King comes back, a Catholic king holds office when a Catholic can't and parliament sends an invitation to a Dutch prince to come over and rule England.
