William III & Mary II

In stock
  • William III (1689 - 1702) and Mary II (1689 - 94) were Britain's only ever joint monarchs, and they changed the course of the entire country's history. They came to power through a coup, which involved Mary betraying her own father, re-established parliament on a new footing and , through committing Britain to fighting France, initiated an immensely long period of welfare and colonial expansion. Jonathan Keates' wonderful book makes both monarchs vivid, the cold, shrewd 'Dutch' William and the short-lived Mary, whose life and death inspired Purcell to write some of his greatest music.
