Born 30 April 1662, Mary II was joint Sovereign of England, Scotland and Ireland alongside William (III and II), her husband and first cousin. Both Protestants, William and Mary became king and queen regnant following the Glorious Revolution that led to the deposition of her Roman Catholic father, James II and VII. She reigned from 1689 until her death in 1694. Popular histories usually refer to their joint reign as that of "William and Mary".

Mary did wield less power than her husband when he was in England, letting him take the lead, though he often relied heavily on her. When William was away, however, engaged in military conflicts, Mary acted alone, proving to be a powerful and effective ruler.


  • King & Queen County, Virginia is named in honor of Mary and her husband, Willem.

Stuart-987 and Stuart-21 appear to represent the same person because: Dates and father and husband match exactly. This is Queen Mary II of England, wife of King William II. Wikipedia says she was the daughter of Anne Hyde, not Arabella Churchill.
