The History of England, from the Accession of James II - (Volume 3, Chapter 12)

by Thomas Babington Macaulay

The History of England from the Accession of James the Second (1848) is the full title of the five-volume work by Lord Macaulay (1800–1859) more generally known as The History of England. It covers the 17-year period from 1685 to 1702, encompassing the reign of James II, the Glorious Revolution, the coregency of William III and Mary II, and up to William III's death. Much of this chapter is taken up with the affairs of Ireland during the reign of James II. The Protestants and Catholics are having their usual disagreements and James is putting his pieces in place in an attempt to use the Irish to consolidate his own rather shaky position.
