Summary:


3 wars spread over 9 years, Roundheads (right but dull) vs Cavaliers (romantic but wrong), King Charles spaniels out of favour for a while, Puritan types in charge for a bit, some battles, the Irish oppressed (as usual) and somewhere between 300,000 and 600,000 dead.

Asserted the right of Politicians to screw the country rather than the King.
