Mary II

Mary II (1662-1694) was the daughter of James II. Following the "Glorious Revolution" of 1688 she was invited to succeed and expelled her father. She co-ruled as Queen of England, Ireland and Scotland with her husband William III ("William of Orange") as king. William made all the decisions, but she was far more popular. After her death in 1694, William continued as king until his death in 1702.
