The Grand Remonstrance was a document presented by the English Parliament to King Charles in December 1641.

It listed numerous grievances that had built up during the King's reign, and attributed blame to those considered responsible for perceived failings in the way the country was being run.

The failure of the King to respond adequately to this document contributed to the tensions which led to the outbreak of the English Civil War in August 1642.
