Cromwell lost patience with the Rump Parliament. The army wanted more influence and to be paid. When the Rumps refused to hold an election unless they could be guaranteed their seats, Cromwell marched in with a troop of soldiers and drove the members out. He then locked the doors of Parliament and put the key in his pocket.
