Queen Anne (1665-1714), Reigned 1702-14

Sitter associated with 72 portraits
Reigned 1702-14. Anne was the second daughter of James, Duke of York (later James II), and Anne Hyde. In 1683 she married Prince George of Denmark; she had eighteen pregnancies but none of her children survived childhood. Anne was intimate with and dependent on Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough, whose husband, the Duke, controlled the war against France. However, she dismissed the Marlboroughs in 1711, largely because of her sympathy with Tory opposition to the Duke's conduct of the war. The most important constitutional landmark of her reign was the Act of Union with Scotland in 1707.
