|Y England Quest for political stability, by Josh Coughlan on Prezi||Marxist theory[ edit ] The Marxist view of the English Revolution suggests that the events of to in Britain was a bourgeois revolution in which the final section of English feudalism the state was destroyed by a bourgeois class and its supporters and replaced with a state and society which reflected the wider establishment of agrarian and later industrial capitalism.

In Decemberhe married Princess Henrietta Maria of France, whose court was often to become a source of some embarrassment to Charles, and he and his father promised toleration for the English Catholics, another source of tension.
Only three months later, on 27 MarchCharles came to the throne. Right from the start, he clashed with Parliament. Involvement in the Thirty Years War continued, with a disastrous attempt against Cadiz inand another, equally disastrous attempt to help the Protestants of Rochelle inafter which Charles made peace with both France and Spain The clashes with Parliament had continued, especially over religion, where Parliament was Calvinist, while Charles was suspiciously High Church, and was always suspected of pro-Catholic leaning.
Parliament was dissolved on 10 Marchbeginning the Eleven Years Tyranny, during which Charles ruled without Parliament. Charles now set about destroying his support.

In Octoberrebellion had broken out in Ireland, and many in Parliament suspected Charles of at least prior knowledge.
On 10 January Charles left to collect troops, while Parliament moved to gain control of the militia. From Nottingham, Charles moved west across the midlands, and into the Welsh marches, gathering an army, before on 12 October leaving Shrewsbury to march on London.
Parliament sent Essex to stop him, and the two sides met in the battle of Edgehill 23 Octoberthe first major battle of the war, and a draw.
However, the result led to gloom in London, and Charles had a brief chance to capture his capitol. By the time he was ready to make that move, the mood of London had recovered, and Charles was faced by the trained bands of London at Turnham Green 13 Novemberafter which he retreated to Oxford to spend the winter, concentrating on expanding the area he held around the city.The role of monarchs and their relationship with the British Empire changed over time.
