In 1688 seven prominent men sent an invitation to William of Orange--King James II's nephew and son-in-law--to intervene in English affairs, thus igniting the Glorious Revolution. But the King's daughters, Mary and Anne, played a crucial role in this drama as well. Through divisive political machinations, the sisters successfully exiled their father from his own court and seized the throne for Mary. While they felt confident that victory was theirs, in the end neither daughter could free herself from James' cursed legacy--or the tragedies that followed their usurpation of power. Acclaimed historian Maureen Waller recreates the late Stuart era in a compelling narrative that highlights the influence of two women in one of the most momentous events in British history.
From the Publisher:
Identifies the roles of the future English queens Mary and Anne in the Glorious Revolution, citing their political machinations and court alliances that contributed to their father's exile and secured the crown for Mary. Reprint.
