    Especially since Cromwell was a fanatical Protestant who, after he became Lord Protector, engaged in horrible atrocities against Irish Catholics.

    At least Charles wasn't as stupid as his son James II, who apparently learned nothing from his dad's fate and acted exactly like him, only worse (going full Catholic at a time when England was firmly Protestant). He was lucky to escape with his life when his own daughters and son-in-law threw him out.
