His Royal Highness William Duke of Gloscester.
His Royal Highness William Duke of Gloscester.
G. Kneller Eques pinx. I. Smith fec:
[John Boydell, c.1760.]
Mezzotint. 200 x 150mm (8 x 6"). Small margins.
A half-length portrait of Prince William Duke of Gloucester (1689-1700), son of Princess Anne and George of Denmark. He was viewed as a Protestant champion and his birth seemed to cement the Protestant succession as established in the 'Glorious Revolution'. He died at the age of 11, before Anne came to the throne, so the Protestant line of the House of Stuart lost its only chance if continuation. So as not to revert to a Catholic state, Parliament chose to pass the Act of Settlement 1701, which settled the throne of England on Sophia, Electress of Hanover, granddaugther of James I, and her Protestant heirs.
