    4. 4. Williamite Wars In Ireland: The Battle of The Boyne Context: The Glorious Revolution The Glorious Revolution of 1688-1689 replaced the reigning king, James II, with the joint monarchy of his Protestant daughter Mary and her Dutch husband, William of Orange. (William III / “King Billy”). It was a bloodless revolution in England, but it was only secured in Scotland and Ireland by force. The revolution cemented Parliament’s supremacy over the Crown.
    5. 5. Williamite Wars In Ireland: The Battle of The Boyne Context: Why A Revolution? James II was a Catholic leading a Protestant country. Parliament feared that he would begin to Catholicise England – Wide spread fear of Popery. James II attempted to rule for long periods without Parliament – showing he had Absolutist tendencies. This was further supported by his close relationship to his cousin – the Absolutist King of France, Louis XIV. James was old and had no heir to the throne. However in 1688 his wife gave birth to his son who would now become next in line to the throne – not the Protestant Mary. Fear of a Catholic Dynasty ruling the Anglican Church.
    6. 6. Williamite Wars In Ireland: The Battle of The BoyneContext: Why Did William Invade?  William III’s main reasons for the invasion of England were:  The Letter from The Immortal Seven: This was a letter sent to William and Mary by seven extremist MP’s. However, this served only as propaganda – William had already drawn up plans to Invade England.  To bring ‘neutral’ England into his war with France: Without the support of England William would find it hard to defeat Louis XIV on the Continent  To defend Protestantism: William presented himself as the defender of Protestantism.
