Yes the British Army would have to change it's recruiting phrase from Be The Best, to Always Fight For The Winner ( Even If They Are Our Enemies )

You missed out the attempt to put King Monmouth on the throne, which was supported by my fellow west countrymen in 1685.

Really it's the long term result of putting the House of Stuart on the throne in 1603 and the hundred years of Civil War that they caused from 1642 until 1745.

"In Our Time" had a great documentary on the period leading up to the death of Charles II:

1712 Death of His Highness Lord Protector Richard Cromwell

Arguably would have saved a lot of trouble to achieve something which would quite likely have been similar to the Hanoverian monarchy…
