★ In 1649, Oliver Cromwell took the title Lord Protector of England.

★ His parliament consisted of a few chosen supporters and was not popular either at home or abroad.

★ Although he faced opposition from those who supported Charles I's son; Charles II, as the rightful King, Oliver Cromwell succeeded in establishing a sound reputation for the Commonwealth by the time of his death in 1658.

★ He was succeeded by his son Richard, who had no wish to rule.

★ Cromwell's opponents were easily able to overthrow him and after a period of anarchy the monarchy was restored with the accession of Charles II.
