Given its strong Protestantism, many Scots mercenaries joined Gustavus Adolphus's cause and fought in Germany during the Thirty Years' War. Following Thomas Wentworth's rise to power, King Charles established a non-interference policy in Scotland, as Wentworth had convinced him that one of the sparks which had led to the English Civil War had been Scottish reaction to William Laud's attempt to impose the Anglican Book of Common Prayer. There was a condition that the Scots not meddle in England, but Wentworth assumed that, if they were left to their "Presbyterian obsessions", they would be too involved with their own quarrels to intervene in England.
