The coronation of William and Mary

William of Orange was Stadtholder of Holland and nephew and son-in-law of England’s king, James II. The Catholic James (also James VII of Scotland) was overthrown during the Glorious Revolution and his daughter, Mary, a Protestant, came to the throne, ruling jointly with her husband, whom she had married in 1677.

The two ruled jointly until Mary’s death in 1694. William died eight years later and was succeeded by his sister in law, Anne.
