Long Parliament

Convened by Charles I, this got its strange name because, through an act of Parliament (passed by, erm, itself) it could not be dissolved unless the members agreed and they didn't, not until after the end of the interregnum in 1660, although it was greatly weakened in 1648 by Cromwell's New Model Army.
