  1. battle of boyne

    The Battle of Boyne is a significant historical event that took place on July 1, 1690 near the River Boyne in Ireland. It was a conflict between two rival claimants of the English, Scottish, and Irish thrones - the Catholic King James II and the Protestant King William III, who had deposed James in 1688. William's victory affirmed his rule over the kingdoms, greatly dwindled James' hope of regaining the throne, and helped ensure Protestant dominance in Ireland. This battle has had enduring symbolic importance in Northern Ireland, being commemorated by Unionists and becoming a key part of their culture and identity.
