From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Committee of Estates governed Scotland during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms when the Parliament of Scotland was not sitting. It was dominated by Covenanters of which the most influential faction was that of the Earl of Argyll.[1]

The Committee derives it name from the "Estates of Scotland" which was an alternative name for the Parliament of Scotland (see The Three Estates of Scotland).
