Footnotes

  • Mary II was the eldest daughter of James, Duke of York, later James II, and Anne Hyde. She reigned as Queen of England and Ireland from 13 February 1689 until her death, and as Queen of Scotland (technically as Mary II of Scotland) from 11 April 1689 until her death. Mary, a Protestant, came to the throne following the Glorious Revolution, which resulted in the deposition of her Roman Catholic father, James II. Mary reigned jointly with her husband and first cousin, William III, who became the sole ruler upon her death. Mary, although a Sovereign in her own right, did not wield actual power during most of her reign. She did, however, govern the realm when her husband was abroad fighting wars and proved a wise and effective ruler. Her many charitable schemes included the William and Mary Missionary College, Williamsburg, Virginia.
