--Overview: Reviews the Glorious Revolution, and states how the Constitutional Monarchy came to be, and how it differed from Absolutism.The Constitutional Monarchy and AbsolutismCharles the First was sympathetic to Catholicism. He believed in the divine right of the monarchy. The Puritan influence in the U.K was rising. Parliament and the rising commercial class were having many conflicts and disagreements with the monarchy. The Parliament, an advisement council for the Monarch, was made up of two houses. The House of Lords, a small and non-powerful house composed of the old nobility. The House of Commons, a large and powerful house composed of the rest of the population elected by property and wealth.Parliament's power was rising, and arguments ensued over money problems. The treasury of Britain was almost bankrupt. These conflicts led to Civil War in the mid 1640's. Charles failed an attempt on overthrowing Parliament, and was himself overthrown by Oliver Cromwell leading Parliament. Charles was found of conspiracy with France, and he was executed in 1649 in public by beheading.The constitutional monarchy arose in England at this time for numerous reasons.Over the next few decades, England was in turmoil, seeing multiple leaders.

In 1688, Parliament staged another takeover, and James II fled to France. This takeover was bloodless, and was named "The Glorious Revolution" for its civil properties. William and Mary now ruled England.Parliament had it's fill of power mongers. The English Bill of Rights was instituted, vastly limiting any future monarchs from having unchecked power. This also inducted the Constitutional Monarchy. The constitutional monarchy would now be a state serving the people, and a state coming from the people. English citizens were now able to have trial by jury, habeas corpus, and the right to petition their monarch amongst other new freedoms. Although the people of England were now free from oppression of the Monarchy, if you read the Bill carefully, it gave powers to the Parliament, not to citizens.In terms of political powers, England (the constitutional monarchy) and France (absolutism) differed greatly. On one hand, constitutional monarchy inventively limited the powers and actions of it's ruler/rulers. In England, after the Bill of Rights was introduced, laws were made by...
