Raised as a Protestant, she was convinced to support the efforts of William of Orange and her sister Mary to depose her Catholic father, King James II. William and Mary became monarchs, and Anne succeeded to the throne upon William's death. Anne herself had no clear successor, and this uncertainty fuelled discord in her reign, marked by bitter rivalries between Whigs and Tories. She was succeeded by the Hanoverian line, descend...

For part of the 1520s, however, he was in some disfavor, partly due to a long-standing rivalry with the Hastings family for preeminence in the Midlands and partly due to his having insulted the King of France. This exchange of lands with the Crown, giving Dorset two manors in Hastings territory, was not uncommon within the Tudor peerage, but may be a sign of his return to royal favor. ...
