This could be a celebration or lament!
1 July 1690
The Battle of the Boyne was fought in Ireland between William of Orange and James II in July 1690.

It was the last time two crowned kings of England, Scotland and Ireland faced each other on the battlefield.

William of Orange won a crushing victory, which secured the Protestant ascendancy in Ireland for generations. It retains huge symbolic importance in Northern Ireland, where it is celebrated by the Orange Order every 12 July.
