Religious strife
Both realms underwent internal religious strife in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. England occasionally supported the French Protestants known as Huguenots. Meanwhile, the Bourbons, who had replaced the Valois, often supported English Catholics in Elizabeth I’s Protestant England. Nevertheless, the first four Stuart monarchs who reigned after Elizabeth James I, Charles I, Charles II and James II) sought to consolidate their Catholic commitments by marrying Catholic princesses from the continent and making peace with France.
The Glorious Revolution in England in 1688 saw the ousting of James II, who fled to France. War between France and the Grande Alliance, which included the England of William and Mary of Orange, immediately broke out. For the next half-century, France supported Jacobites (English Catholics) in the hopes of restoring James II and his descendants to the throne.
