More recently still, when another King started looking a bit too Catholic, Parliament invited a Dutchman (William of Orange) to take the Crown.He did so without too much fuss in what came to be known as 'The Glorious Revolution'.Complicating things was that much of the American colonial populace was composed of descendants of the so-called religious "dissenters": Puritans, Quakers, Methodists, Baptists, and dozens of other small denominations who'd come to America to escape the iron hand that the Church of England had upon public life and where they were often prohibited from owning land or practicing professions.To say nothing of the Germans who showed up in the country because their prince was a Catholic and didn't like Protestants—or was a Protestant and thought they were the wrong kind of Protestant—and the Dutch Reformed who had been there longer in the first place.

Third, it left the British Crown short of cash; the war had only ended when it did because Britain had been less broke than France because the royal banking system of the latter was kind of a mess.In the beginning, maybe a third of the colonists felt this was justified; roughly a fifth never did, and a twentieth left the new country to remain the Crown's loyal subjects in the Great White North, a land which has ever since prided itself upon being even more loyal to His/Her Majesty than Britain herself.This was the American Revolution, the era of King George III of The United Kingdom, General Charles Cornwallis, King Louis XVI of France, General Jean-Baptiste de Vimeur, The Franco-Spanish Armada (which failed, obviously), George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, Benedict Arnold, the Boston Massacre With a death toll of 5, it might be a stretch to call it a "massacre", and it was directly attributable to unruly civilians thinking it'd be fun to keep pegging snowballs and chunks of ice at armed soldiers after being asked to stop because that's actually quite dangerous, dontchaknow.Just a century ago, the English Civil War (which deeply involved all three kingdoms, and killed maybe 2% of their total population) had started when King Charles I had tried to collect taxes outside of Parliament and ended years after his execution at their hands.Parliament later invited his son to become King and rule with their consent.
