Join The National Archives and History of Parliament Trust for a look at Britain’s most tumultuous years.
The Long Parliament, summoned in November 1640 by King Charles I, lasted until March 1660 when an act was passed for its dissolution. These years are some of the most dramatic in British history as tensions between king and parliament steadily increased before Civil War broke out in England in 1642, leading to the execution of Charles I in 1649 by the House of Commons.
