This chapter discusses the events that led to the war in Scotland. It can be recalled that the Scots were former enemies of King Charles I, and they were still reluctant and suspicious to form an alliance with the son of their previous enemy. This chapter highlights that the presence of the previous king's advisers and other companions may have led to the Scots disbelief that King Charles II would be better than his predecessor, thus leading to a proclamation of war.
