This chapter discusses the political consequences that occurred after King Charles II fell ill sometime during the last few years of the 1670s. One of the events that happened during this time was related to the return of James, the king's younger brother, who was asked to return to the country after the Triumvirate (Halifax, Sunderland, and Essex) feared that the king might die.
