House of Stuart

  1. James I
    The death of Elizabeth I led to the end of the Tudor dynasty and the beginning of the reign of House Stuart.
  2. Charles I
    Charles I of England and Scotland was the King of England, Scotland and Ireland from his father’s death until his own execution in 1649. He is probably best remembered for his part in the English Civil War between Parliamentarians and Royalists which temporarily saw the end of the monarchy in Britain.
  3. Charles II
    The exiled son of Charles I, England’s final monarch before the Civil War, was welcomed back and returned to his throne in 1660 where he proved to be one of England’s most popular kings.
  4. James II
    James II of England and VII of Scotland ascended the throne after the death of his brother Charles II who had no legitimate children.
  5. William and Mary
    After parliament called for the removal of James II/VII, co-rulers William III/II Prince of Orange from the Dutch Republic and Mary II, James’ oldest daughter ascended the throne.
  6. Queen Anne
    Though Queen Anne’s reign is most known for the style of furniture and decoration that came out of it, it was actually an important era in British history. It was during her reign that England and Scotland united to become Great Britain and that the House of Stuart ended, bringing in the next royal era, the House of Hanover.
  7. Oliver Cromwell
    After the execution of Charles I, a commonwealth of England (Wales was part of England at the time), Scotland and Ireland was created and administered by Oliver Cromwell.
