The Kingdom of Ireland (1660-1801) represented a restoration of the monarchy to Ireland following the period of the interregnum, when the country was ruled as part of the Commonwealth under Oliver Cromwell. Charles II was restored as monarch in 1660 and reigned until 1685. In 1801 it was united with Great Britain to form the United Kingdom.

History Edit

Ireland's invasion by the Anglo-Normans in 1170 led to centuries of strife. Successive English kings sought to conquer Ireland. In the early 17th century, large-scale settlement of the north from Scotland and England began. After its defeat, Ireland was subjected, with varying degrees of success, to control and regulation by Britain.[1]

In 1800 the Irish parliament passed the Act of Union with Great Britain, and Ireland was an official part of the United Kingdom until 1921. Religious freedom, outlawed in the 18th century, was restored in 1829.[2]
