Oliver Cromwell

 English life under the Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell was not peaceful.  Cromwell did not want monarchs to be the rulers of England so he encouraged the execution of the current king, Charles I.  Charles ended up getting executed in 1649 and Cromwell became the Lord Protector of England.  Before Charles was executed Cromwell established a military army called the New Model Army to try to over-through monarchial power.  Cromwell has been described as a “military dictator.”  With that description it doesn’t sound like life in England would be very peaceful and sound.
