Queen Mary II

(1662-1694), Reigned with William III 1689-94

Sitter associated with 93 portraits
The eldest daughter of James, Duke of York, later James II, and Anne Hyde. Mary married the Dutch prince William of Orange at Whitehall in 1677, and returned with him to The Netherlands. In the dilemma of the 1688 Revolution she supported her husband and Protestantism rather than her Catholic father, and was invited to return to England in 1689 to share the monarchy with William. She proved a wise and effective ruler, especially during William's absences at war, and her many charitable schemes included the William and Mary Missionary College, Williamsburg, Virginia.
