Queen Anne reigned over two major events in British history—the Act of Union, which joined England and Scotland, and the War of Spanish Succession. Plagued by ill health, she died without leaving an heir. This comprehensive two-volume study of her reign is an invaluable resource for history buffs, bringing to life the last of the Stuart monarchs. Volume One begins with the ascension of Queen Anne—following a brief summary of the policies of Louis XIV—and closes in the year 1707.
