Some videos about the English Revolutions

Here you have some videos to review the English Revolutions:

- These are some scenes of the film Cromwell, that show the conflict between Charles I of England and the Parliament, the Civil War, the execution of the king and the establishment of the Republic, with Oliver Cromwell as the main figure:

- The English Civil War and the in three minutes: 

- A funny depiction of Charles II, the monarch who restored monarchy after Oliver Cromwell's, from Horrible Histories:

- The Glorious Revolution and the Bill of the Rights:

- The Glorious Revolution in 3 minutes:
