Back on mainland Europe the UsefulNotes/ThirtyYearsWar was fought; France, Sweden, and Austria fighting over the UsefulNotes/HolyRomanEmpire, hastening its long, painful decline. East of Germany, rowdy Polish nobility alternates between fighting in perpetual wars against Sweden, Muscovy and Turkey, and generally making a mess around themselves.

Somewhere in the middle, [[EnglishCivilWar Britain had a civil war]]. Dashing Cavaliers fought dour Puritans the length and breadth of both islands, and the son of the King hid in an oak tree. The Puritans won, and abolished Christmas, then the country abolished them. The surviving puritans left England and founded the United States, Charles II climbed back out of the oak tree, London burnt to the ground, women were allowed to be actors on stage and Newton invented gravity. Somebody named [[Literature/TheDiaryOfSamuelPepys Pepys kept a diary]].
