  85. He was the last Catholic monarch to reign over the Kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland.

He lived out the rest of his life under the protection of his cousin and ally, King Louis XIV.

  3) Around the 16th century, people started to collect instead of just playing music. instead adv. in place of, or as an alternative to on the contrary e.g. If you can’t sign your name, make a cross instead.
