Despite his Catholicism, James became king in February 1685 with widespread support as many feared his exclusion would lead to a repetition of the 1638–1651 Wars of the Three Kingdoms. The new monarchs tightened their grip on Catholic Ireland but left the American colonies, which James II had tried to control, more or less alone, allowing them to develop a unique political culture. It resulted in increased powers for Parliament, more independence in the American colonies and the Protestant domination of Ireland. [152] Though he had promised legal toleration for Roman Catholics in his Declaration of October 1688, William was ultimately unsuccessful in this respect, due to opposition by the Tories in the new Parliament. Potential MPs had to be approved by their local Lord Lieutenant; eligibility for both offices required positive answers to the 'Three Questions', including a commitment to repeal the Test Act, and those giving negative answers dismissed. This was accepted by the States, with the objective left deliberately vague, other than making the English "King and Nation live in a good relation, and useful to their friends and allies, and especially to this State". The two initially shared common objectives in wanting Mary to succeed her father, while French ambitions in the Spanish Netherlands threatened both English and Dutch trade.

James, by his own choice, went under Dutch protective guard to Rochester in Kent on 18 December, just as William entered London, cheered by crowds dressed in orange ribbons or waving, lavishly distributed, oranges. Elections were held in March for a Scottish Convention, which was also a contest between Presbyterians and Episcopalians for control of the kirk. It listed twelve of James's policies by which James designed to "endeavour to subvert and extirpate the protestant religion, and the laws and liberties of this kingdom". [110] However, in the first weeks most people carefully avoided taking sides; as a whole the nation neither rallied behind its king, nor welcomed William, but passively awaited the outcome of events. L'historiographie la plus In December, there was anti-Catholic rioting in Bristol, Bury St. Edmunds, Hereford, York, Cambridge, and Shropshire. Having England as an ally meant that the military situation of the Republic was strongly improved, but this very fact induced William to be uncompromising in his position towards France. Most importantly, it was seen as a short-term issue; James was 52, his marriage to Mary of Modena remained childless after 11 years, and the heirs were his Protestant daughters, Mary and Anne.

He was extremely dismayed by the arrival of Lord Feversham. [141] The events were unusual because the establishment of a constitutional monarchy (a de facto republic, see Coronation Oath Act 1688) and Bill of Rights meant that the apparently invading monarchs, legitimate heirs to the throne, were prepared to govern with the English Parliament. [13] Episcopalians had regained control of the kirk in 1660, leading to a series of Presbyterian uprisings, but the bitter religious conflicts of the civil war period meant the majority preferred stability. The overthrow of James was hailed at the time and ever since as a "revolution", and the name of "Glorious Revolution" was popularized by Protestant preachers two decades later. La révolution de Juillet renverse Charles x durant les Trois Glorieuses du 27 au 29 juillet. The fleet nearly mutinied in July when Catholic Mass was held on one of the ships, only averted when James went in person to pacify the sailors.

[63], At the beginning of September, an invasion remained in the balance, with the States General fearing a French attack via Flanders while their army was in England. [61], Although his English supporters considered a token force sufficient, William assembled 260 transport ships and 14,000 men, nearly half the 30,000 strong Dutch States Army. As he was an avowed Catholic and knew that he would not get any help to fulfill his desire from the Parliament, he took steps by illegal exercise of the royal prerogative. James returned to London that same day. The next day, Lord Churchill, one of James' chief commanders, deserted to William. The Church of Ireland depended on the Crown for its survival, while Ulster was dominated by Presbyterians who supported his tolerance policies. On 9 November (Julian calendar), William took Exeter after the magistrates had fled the city, entering on a white palfrey, with the two hundred black men forming a guard of honour, dressed in white, with turbans and feathers.

On 30 December, William, speaking to the Marquess of Halifax, threatened to leave England "if King James came again" and determined to go back to the Netherlands "if they went about to make him Regent". News of James's flight led to celebrations and anti-Catholic riots in Edinburgh and Glasgow. [96], Taking advantage of a wind again turned to the east, and resupplied and re-equipped with new horses, the invasion fleet departed again on 1/11 November and sailed north in the direction of Harwich, where Bentinck had a landing site prepared.

Le nouveau roi de France fait figure de chef du parti des « ultras », c'est-à-dire des partisans d'une monarchie intransigeante, fortement liée à l'Eglise, Le terme est à nuancer tout d'abord en raison des combats sévères qui opposèrent les partisans catholiques à l'armée néerlandaise de Guillaume III, ainsi qu'à cause de la sanglante contre-révolution qui s'ensuivit en Irlande peu de temps après. This assembly called for a chosen English Convention Parliament, elected on 5 January 1689 NS,[b] which convened on 22 January.

The fleet was approximately halfway between the Republic and England when the wind changed to the northwest and a gale scattered the fleet, with the Brill returning to Hellevoetsluis on 21/31 October. While the Revolution was quick and relatively bloodless, establishing the new regime took much longer and led to significant casualties. '[12] Unlike England, over 95 percent of Scots belonged to the Church of Scotland, or kirk; even other Protestant sects were banned, and by 1680, Catholics were a tiny minority confined to parts of the aristocracy and the remote Highlands.
