Wrightson: Constitutional Revolution and Civil War, 1640-1646 Regicide and Republic, 1647-1660 At the accession of Charles I in 1625, England and Scotland had both experienced relative peace, both internally and in their relations with each other, for as long as anyone could remember. Charles hoped to unite the kingdoms of England, Scotland and Ireland into a new single kingdom, fulfilling the dream of his father, James VI of Scotland and I of England. However, conflicts with Scotland and Ireland over religion and with his own Parliament over taxation and power arose almost immediately. In 1638 the Scots rebelled against Charles' implementation of a new Anglican prayer book and in 1641 the Irish Catholics rebelled as well. Charles was forced to recall Parliament (which he had previously dissolved) to obtain funds for war but the new Parliament was more concerned in addressing their grievances with the King. In early 1642, Charles attempted to arrest 5 members of Parliament for treason but failed. Fearing for his safety, Charles fled London and raised his standard at Nottingham, signaling the start of the English Civil War. The war initially went well for Charles, with victories in the south and west of England, however the tide turned with defeat at Marston Moor in 1644. The defeat saw Charles lose York and much of the north of England. Further defeats at Naseby and Langport saw Charles' armies effectively destroyed. Charles surrendered to the Scots in 1646 and was eventually handed over to Parliament. While in custody, Charles allied with the Scots and instigated a rebellion which led to the Second English Civil War. Parliament was able to put down the rebellion and, after the army marched on Parliament demanding action, placed Charles on trial for treason. Charles was found guilty and beheaded on January 30, 1649. After the execution of Charles I in 1649 the Scottish Covenanters allied with his son, Charles II, but Scotland was conquered by Oliver Cromwell's New Model Army and Scotland's hopes of independence from the English Commonwealth were dashed. The situation in Ireland turned to stalemate until the defeat of the Royalists in England in 1646. In 1647, Parliamentarian forces inflicted a shattering series of defeats on the Confederates. In 1649, Cromwell invaded Ireland with his New Model Army and by 1651, nearly all of Ireland had been conquered. Irish guerrillas, or "Tories," continued to resist for two more years but most surrendered when Cromwell offered to allow them to leave Ireland and serve in the French army. After the English Parliament devolved into infighting and inaction, Cromwell dissolved it and ruled over England, Scotland, and Ireland as Lord Protector until his death in 1658. In 1660, the Restoration would return Charles II to the throne.

In short, the AI is incredibly stupid. I have taken as many measures as possible to increase the competitiveness of the AI but it is still pretty pathetic. I recommend playing the scenario on Deity for any sort of challenge.
