I tried to simplify some of the sentences, as you suggested to me. Can you please check if everything is OK?

1) Puritans was the name given to the more extreme Protestants within the Church of England. They disapproved of both the rites and the bishops of the Church of England and wanted to reform the doctrines and the structure of the church. In particular, they wanted to purify the church from any trace of Catholic influence.
2) Charles I, however, believed he was king by divine right and refused to give up command of the arm forces. For this reason, Civil War broke out.
3) The forces were divided into the Royalists and the supporters of Parliament, led by Oliver Cromwell. The former had long hair and were known as “Cavaliers”. They included the lords, the gentry and the Church of England.
4) The latter were called Roundheads because they considered long hair sinful and wore their hair short. London, the ports, the Navy, the new gentry, small landowners, artisans and puritans sided with Parliament.
5) After the King’s execution on January 39, 1649, monarchy was abolished and the reign was ruled as a republic known as Commonwealth.
