Oliver Cromwell was a very well-known leader for the parliamentary forces and Great Britain was then soon ruled by him. He governed Britain and with being a puritan many were against him. Oliver ruled for 4 years.
When Oliver Cromwell died, Charles II took his place and became the king of Great Britain. Charles II worked with the parliament. He ruled from 1660-1685.
James II had problems with the parliament involving religion. His reign eventually ended.
Mary II and William III

Mary II was the daughter of King James II and was also protestant; William III was her husband. Ended the chances of Catholicism becoming head of England.
