'Queen Anne's Dead'
Hazel Winter
This term you have been hearing a great deal about the Stuarts, and today Hazel Winter is to tell you about the last of them all to occupy the British throne. Anne ruled from 1702-1714. Marlborough achieved his great victories, eminent men of letters flourished, beautiful furniture was made. The Union between England and Scotland was accomplished, and Anne was the first monarch to be styled Empress of Great Britain. But all her children died young, and at her death no one knew who was to ascend the throne.
