This detailed study traces the course of a critical period of Irish history: from the accession of James II to the surrender of Limerick, which made William of Orange master of the whole country.

First published 1969

This detailed study traces the course of a critical period of Irish history: from the accession of James II to the surrender of Limerick, which made William of Orange master of the whole country. It takes the story from the Catholic revival that followed the accession of James II to the treaty of Limerick, which led to a century of Protestant ascendancy and penal laws.

Much of the book is concerned with 'the war of the two kings', which coincided with a struggle for power between the Protestant settlers and the older inhabitants who were Catholic. The siege of Derry and the battle of the Boyne are still commemorated, and Dr Simms shows how the tensions of modern Ulster have their origins in the seventeenth century.
