Monarchs and parliaments in a Scottish context: the Scottish restoration parliament and the reassertion of the royal prerogative of Charles II as King of Scotland

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter examines the Restoration Settlement that was enacted in the Scottish Parliament of 1661-1663 and how the prerogative powers of the Scottish monarchy were reasserted in the aftermath of conquest by Oliver Cromwell and occupation of Scotland between 1651 and 1660. The longer-term perspective against which this monarchical reassertion was set was the experience of the Covenanting Parliaments of 1639-41. During this period, the Scottish Parliament had become more powerful at the expense of the monarchy. This had been legislated for in particular in the Scottish constitutional settlement of 1640-41. In essence, therefore, there were two important contexts in which Scottish parliamentary developments of 1661-63 should be viewed: foreign conquest and occupation and an earlier period of constitutional reform that had restricted the powers of the Scottish monarchy and increased those of the Scottish Parliament.
