Homework Help: English

I urgently need you to check this part on English history I wrote.
Thank you very much for helping me.

1)In 1660 Parliament invited Charles II (1660-1685) to return to his kingdom from exile in France and the republic was over.
2) The restoration of the monarchy was greeted with great relief by most Englishmen, who had felt oppressed in their everyday life by the strict rules of the Puritans.
3) Charles II’s court was the most immoral in English history. When the two catastrophes of the plague and the Great Fire hit the country, the Puritans interpreted them as God’s punishment for the king’s immorality. 4) London was struck in 1665 by an outbreak of bubonic plague, during which more than 100,000 people died. A year later, a fire destroyed most of the City in four days.
5) Charles II was succeeded by his brother James II, who was even more absolutist than Charles himself.
He claimed (synonym?) the divine right of kings to decide over their country’s own destiny without consulting the Parliament.
