Fifth Monarchy

Fifth Monarchy, the millennium or personal reign of Christ on earth, which was looked for in the time of Cromwell by the sect called "Fifth Monarchy Men." The four preceding "monarchies" were those of Assyria, Persia, Greece, and Rome, enumerated in the Book of Daniel. These enthusiasts would acknowledge no human ruler, and organised risings in 1657 and 1661, which were, however, unsuccessful.
