Good Queen Anne: Appraising the Life and Reign of the Last Stuart Monarch follows the life and tribulations of one of England’s most powerful women.
Anne Stuart was raised in a court notorious for immorality and intrigue, happily married a handsome prince, experienced plots galore and a secret midnight flight, and suffered persecution and ill-health all by the age of thirty-seven. Gout-ridden and prematurely aged by seventeen pregnancies that failed to provide her nation with an heir, Anne began her reign by committing to a long and costly overseas war against Europe’s superpower while maintaining peace during political conflict at home.
Anne Stuart, often overlooked by history, proved that women in the 18th century were not the weak stereotypes they are sometimes portrayed to be. Anne acted as a strong queen and become beloved by her subjects. In a male dominated world, Anne did not let her gender stop her from leading one of history’s most powerful empires.
Good Queen Anne: Appraising the Life and Reign of the Last Stuart Monarch is set to release, March 19th 2019. The book can be found on Amazon.
