I left out the following sentences. Thank you.

1) This accelerated a secret plan to call in (I need to rephrase this) William of Orange, the champion of the Protestant cause in Europe and the husband of James’ Protestant daughter, Mary.
2) Cooperation between Crown and Parliament became effective only with the so-called Glorious Revolution. Its name celebrates the bloodlessness of the event, which saw William of Orange and his wife Mary established (?) as joint monarchs in 1689.
3) The reign of William and Mary was a time of economic progress for England; London was becoming the financial capital of the world.
After Mary’s death in 1694, William of Orange or William III (1689-1702) reigned alone.
During his reign a series of laws were introduced which were to fix the course of modern Parliamentary England. The Bill of Rights (1689) established that the Crown would not be able to rule the country without Parliament. The Toleration Act, which was passed in the same year, granted Dissenters reasonable freedom of religion. Finally, the Act of Settlement of 1701 ensured that within the royal family only Protestants could be heirs to the throne.
