Mary, Queen Of England
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 53
In 1688 the arbitrary measures of James II, both against the established religion and the constitution, induced many nobles and others to incite the Prince of Orange to take possession of the English crown. He embraced the occasion, and landed without opposition at Torbay the same year. James, finding himself unsupported, withdrew to France, and William took possession of his throne in conjunction with his wife, the daughter of that unfortunate monarch. His coronation as King of England took place in 1689. Thus a Dutch stadtholder became King of England. [P. 59.]
