Queen Mary II (1662 - 1694), reigned 1689-94. The eldest daughter of James II, Mary married Prince William of Orange in 1677. In the dilemma of the 1688 Revolution she supported her husband and Protestantism rather than her Catholic father, and she 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. In oval frame, coat of arms in the lower part; biographical text. Engraved by Nicolas de Larmessin I (1632 - 1694), from a large series of (at least) 240 portraits.
