In 1688, Parliament overthrew James II and invited William and Mary, Duke and Duchess of Orange, to be the new monarchs. This revolution was bloodless, so it was named the Glorious Revolution. This event has proven to be one of the most significant events in English history, as it marks the end of absolutism in England and a victory for the principles of John Locke and the Whig party. It also has proven to be significant to American history, as revolutionary leaders in 1776 rebelled against England as their ancestors had rebelled against James II, arming themselves with similar principles.
