William III & Mary II (Penguin Monarchs)

Partners in Revolution




The acclaimed Penguin Monarchs series: short, fresh, expert accounts of England's rulers - now in paperback.

'The couple's fate was to become a celebrity icon, their crowned likenesses adorning everything from earthenware dishes, fans and playing cards to banners, song sheets and medals'

William III and Mary II, Britain's only ever joint monarchs, came to the throne through a coup with the 'Glorious Revolution', re-established parliament on a new footing and helped transform England into a world power. This is a vivid portrait of their dramatic reign and how it changed the course of the country's history.
