Mary II became the Queen of England and Scotland when she and her husband William of Orange overthrew her father King James II in the Glorious Revolution in November 1688. She and William reigned together as "William and Mary". (AUDIO: The Glorious Revolution, Phantasmagoria)


Mary, Queen of Scots (TV: The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo)

According to a National Portrait Gallery poster in a Coal Hill Academy history classroom, Mary was not only a Scottish ruler, but a Catholic martyr and a talented golfer. (TV: The Coach with the Dragon Tattoo) In contrast to her Catholic father, she and her husband were Protestants.

After the birth of her younger brother James Stuart in 1688, there was a rumour that he had been smuggled into his mother's bedchamber in a warming pan. William and Mary encouraged this rumour as, if it were true, it would mean that Mary was the first in line to the English and Scottish thrones. (AUDIO: The Glorious Revolution)

Behind the scenes Edit

She was portrayed by Lisa Daniely in The First Churchills, Sarah Crowden in Orlando and Rebecca Front in England, My England.
