Ireland History from AJ's blog

The jacobite-williamite war in brief:


The war among king james and king william in 1689-ninety one, that decided the destiny of ireland. By way of john dorney


Every year 12th of July, orangemen in North Ireland march to commemorate the victory of king William of orange over the catholic king james on the war of the boyne in 1690.


In fact the boyne occurred on july 1, 1690 and at the start protestants honored the culminating battle of aughrim, fought on july 12, 1691, on the 12th. But regardless of, the boyne is still honored due to its symbolism.


For at the boyne have been gift  kings, one the catholic james stuart, king of britain, scotland and eire, supported through france of louis xiv and maximum of ireland’s catholics, representing, supposedly, absolutism and tyranny.


And on the alternative aspect was the protestant william of orange, stadtholder of the dutch republic, and claimant to the throne of the 3 kingdoms, supported by the english parliament, most of eire’s protestants and by means of a coalition of protestant powers which include denmark and william’s native netherlands.


Consistent with the ‘whig’ (english liberal) and certainly the orange subculture, william’s pressure stood for non secular freedom.
