Treaty of Ripon, 26 October 1640
Treaty that ended the Second Bishop's War between Charles I of England and the Scots. Charles was forced to allow the Scots to keep control of Northumberland and Durham, and to pay them £850 a day until the issue was settled. Charles was forced to summon the Long Parliament, in an attempt to resolve the issue, which eventually led to the English Civil War.
