    One thought on “William III & Mary II: Partners in Revolution”

    1. I was drawn to this short joint biography of William III and Mary II because of the subtitle - Partners in Revolution. Most books about the Glorious Revolution emphasize William III at the expense of his wife and co-monarch, Mary II but Keates is careful to give Mary her due, stating that "There was always more to Mary than Protestant piety, and a fondness for knitting, old folk songs and blue and white porcelain" noting that she was praised for her political abilities as well as her willingness [...]

    2. Excellent book. It is so nice to read a biography that refuses to read history through modern eyes. The author presents both William and Mary as he found them in their writings and actions. He noted their upright characters as well as their failings. Their reign should be celebrated much more than it is because they were the first British king and queen to accept the Bill of Rights presented to them by parliament. A remarkable step that took place long before either the American or French revolu [...]

    3. A good book if you want a quick biography to read. Though as expected, it does gloss over quite a bit and only really provides a general overview of the lives of William and Mary. My main complaint is that despite being joint monarchs, more of the book is spent talking about William and not equally about Mary, much as the author did try to give her more credit than some historians have.(I also have to say, somewhat vainly, that the covers of this series are gorgeous.)
