The reign of Queen Anne was a period of significant progress for the country, but the Queen has received little credit for these achievements. This biography seeks to shatter the image of a weak and ineffective monarch and establish her as a personality of integrity and invincible stubbornness. This revised edition includes a new foreword by the author. 'The best kind of biography, scholarly but sympathetic, as well as highly readable.' John Kenyon, 'Observer' Edward Gregg was professor of history at the University of South Carolina.
