Summary
In 1688, the birth of a Prince of Wales ignited a family quarrel and a revolution. James II's drive toward Catholicism had alienated the nation and his two staunchly Protestant daughters by his first marriage, Mary and Anne. They are the 'ungrateful daughters' who usurped their father's crown and stole their brother's birthright. Seven prominent men sent an invitation to William of Orange - James's nephew and son-in-law - to intervene in English affairs. But it was the women, Queen Mary Beatrice and her two stepdaughters Mary and Anne, who played a key role in this drama. Jealous and resentful of her hated stepmother, Anne had written a series of malicious letters to her sister Mary in Holland, implying that the Queen's pregnancy was a hoax, a Catholic plot to deny Mary her rightful inheritance
