The war was won by Parliament, but after the death of Oliver Cromwell in 1658 dissent led to disorder and the monarchy was restored in 1660. For eleven years, from 1649-60 England was a republic.
Fought between 1642 to 1651, the English Civil War pitted the Royalists against the Parliamentarians. The result of the war was a victory for the Parliamentarians, and King Charles I's execution.
