The, English parliament formed between Dec 1648 and Nov 1653 after Pride's purge of the Long Parliament to ensure a majority in favor of trying Charles I. It was dismissed 1653 by Cromwell, who replaced it with the Barebones Parliament.
Reinstated after the Protectorate ended 1659 and the full membership in the Long Parliament restored 1660, the Rump dissolved itself shortly afterwards and was replaced by the Convention Parliament, which brought about the restoration of the monarchy.
