The Glorious Revolution was a revolution that occurred in November 1688, which brought the reign of King James II of England to an end. Its less immediate consequences included the Jacobite Risings which culminated in the Battle of Culloden on 16 April 1746.
During the revolution, the Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Heriot visited London and met James II. While they were there, Jamie accidentally created an alternative timeline in which the Glorious Revolution was a failure and James II retained the throne until his death. Consequently, the Jacobite Risings and the Battle of Culloden never took place. James II's grandson, Charles Edward Stuart, better known as Bonnie Prince Charlie, eventually ascended the throne as King Charles III. He was still the reigning monarch in 1788.
