Nor did the nation achieve a proper equilibrium after 1660, under the restored monarchy in the hectic reign of Charles II (1660–85). The short reign of Charles’s younger brother James II (1685–88) had been even more troublesome; there was during his years on the throne an obvious desire by the royal family to revert to Catholicism.
