A map illustrating the complexity, viciousness, and chaos of the English Civil Wars, also known as the War of the Three Kingdoms (England, Scotland, and Ireland) between 1642 and 1651. The roots of the conflicts stemmed from the contrasting aspirations of how the three interconnected kingdoms (ruled by the same monarch - Charles I and, later, his son and successor, Charles II) on the British Isles should be governed. Amongst the various players who opposed the supporters of the monarchy were the Parliamentarians in England, Covenanters in Scotland, and Confederates in Ireland.
