This chapter discusses the activities done to eliminate the two great issues that had plagued King Charles I during his reign. The ‘Cavalier’ Parliament was able to remove most of the constitutional reforms enacted during the previous twenty years, and it also ordered the public burning of the Solemn League and Covenant, as well as four other documents. Despite having removed the number of issues that had plagued the previous monarch, King Charles II was still unable to achieve the restoration of his father's monarchy.

Keywords:   reign, King Charles I, Cavalier Parliament, constitutional reforms, Solemn League, Covenant, burning, restoration
