Provide evidence that Cromwell’s power was superior to that of the Stuarts before the revolution.

In 1653, with the support of the army, Cromwell dispersed the Long Parliament. In 1654 he was inducted into the life-long position of Lord Protector of the English Republic. A military dictatorship was established in the country. Legislative power belonged to the Lord Protector in conjunction with Parliament, but in fact Cromwell became the sole ruler of the state.
All who fought on the side of the king were taxed in the treasury. The country was divided into 11 districts, led by major generals.
Unlike the Stuarts, Cromwell had a large army (“10,000 cavalry and dragoons and 20,000 infantry”). In addition, he was given the right to “all kinds of decrees, summons, powers, patents, grants and other orders, which were still issued in the name and title of the guardians of freedom of England by the power of parliament.”
Output. Cromwell had much more rights and powers than kings. He had a large standing army, funded by the state; could introduce taxes; receive confiscated property of convicts. Cromwell determined the directions of British foreign policy.
