2.7.1690: Battle of the Boyne
William of Orange won this battle against the Stuarts, who had been ousted from power in the Glorious Revolution of 1688, along with their Irish supporters. The Catholic Stuarts lost their claim to the throne in 1701, which meant that it was inherited by the Protestant House of Hanover. The Protestant victory is still celebrated by the Unionists in Northern Ireland.
