Book review

The King hoped that under the influence of patriotic deputies will allow him to raise the funds needed for the war. But he was wrong again. At the first sitting of the House of Commons MPs have announced their intention to be subjected to review all that has been done without them for 11 years. King announced dissolute the Parliament, but it was in a very difficult situation: his army consisted of rabble and constantly suffered defeat in the war. In November 1640 he was reluctant to convene a new parliament, which went down in history under the name of duty. November 11 MPs demanded the trial of Streffordom. On the same day he was arrested and, together with Lodom imprisoned. All who took any part in the assembly, "the ship's duties" were persecuted. Lacking in their hands no military force and relying only on the London crowd, Parliament actually took into their own hands governance. Carl made one concession after another. In the end he sacrificed his minister, and in May 1641 the hated everything Strefford was beheaded. Laws were passed that the interval between the dissolution of the old Parliament and the convening of the new can not exceed three years, and that the King can not dissolve the parliament against his will.
