Best Answer

The English Civil started in 1642 and ended in 1651. The conflict was between the monarch, Charles I, and the Parliamentarians, mainly led by Oliver Cromwell. Although, Charles and Parliament had never agreed with each other, the war was officially declared after the Grand Remonstrance. This was an act passed by Parliament demanding the Charles got rid of the Archbishop of Canterbury, William Laud, bishops and the Earl of Stafford.

In the lead up to the war, Charles was constantly asking Parliament to raise more money for him to fund his lavish lifestlye. Parliament agreed to give him one seventh of his demand, raised through the Poll Tax. This angered Charles and he raised a new tax called Ship Tax. (Note: Ship Tax is an extra tax on the coastal counties to raise money for ship-building in a wartime) The majority of the general public was on Parliament's side after Charles introduced Ship Tax in a peacetime to the whole country.

Parliament didn't like baron and one of Charles' closest friends, the Earl of Strafford, because he encouraged the decision to introduce Ship Tax.

Parliament didn't like Archbishop Laud because England was a Protestant country. Laud made some reforms to the church when he came to power that were more like Catholic practices. Then Charles married Catholic, French princess, Henrietta Maria, so Parliament was scared that Charles would make England Catholic again.
