KingvsParliament Photo The growth of the English Middle Class during the 17th and early 18th centuries was a by-product of the Commercial Revolution and the advancements introduced by the Agricultural Revolution.
The English Middle Class was larger than in any other European country, with the exception of the Netherlands. Wealthy landowners dominated politics in the House of Commons. Legal precedents were utilized to limit the king’s authority.
As the tax burden was more equitable that in France, the peasantry was not as exploited. In addition, the large number of Calvinists, including Puritans, increasingly became influential. It was with this in mind that increasing pressure was placed upon the English monarchs to produce reforms.
This struggle between King and Parliament played out on a continuous basis for centuries to come. This quiz is a survey of some of the major legislation of those early years.

Shame on me for doing so poorly on your quiz. Itw as one of the best I have taken ever, so low score aside, I prefer to view it as a great learning tool. Snotty American that I am I thought only WE had a Bill of Rights. Super effort on your part, Eileen
