[153] After the second dissolution of the Rump, in October 1659, the prospect of a total descent into anarchy loomed as the Army's pretense of unity finally dissolved into factions. Opposition to Charles also arose from many local grievances. So Puritanism was seen as the natural ally of a people preserving their traditional rights against arbitrary monarchical power. Colonel Thomas Horton defeated the Royalist rebels at the Battle of St Fagans (8 May)[109] and the rebel leaders surrendered to Cromwell on 11 July after a protracted two-month siege of Pembroke.

However, Charles's insistence on giving command of the English force to his unpopular royal favourite George Villiers, the Duke of Buckingham, undermined that support. This vision of at least partial democracy in ecclesiology paralleled the struggles between Parliament and the King. As the summer progressed, cities and towns declared their sympathies for one faction or the other: for example, the garrison of Portsmouth commanded by Sir George Goring declared for the King,[65] but when Charles tried to acquire arms from Kingston upon Hull, the weaponry depository used in the previous Scottish campaigns, Sir John Hotham, the military governor appointed by Parliament in January, refused to let Charles enter the town,[66] and when Charles returned with more men later, Hotham drove them off.

For example, Charles finally made terms with the Covenanters in August 1641, but although this might have weakened the position of the English Parliament, the Irish Rebellion of 1641 broke out in October 1641, largely negating the political advantage he had obtained by relieving himself of the cost of the Scottish invasion. The two sides would line up opposite one another, with infantry brigades of musketeers in the centre.
