KS3 The Stuarts Resources
Did you know the House of Stuart is responsible for producing nine monarchs? That’s an impressive feat considering they almost never made it to the throne in the first place: Throughout early Elizabeth’s reign, she was plagued by the threat of Mary, Queen of Scots (a Stuart) staking her claim as the rightful Queen of England. Her marriage to Lord Darnley only strengthened this claim. Even though she was executed by Elizabeth, upon Elizabeth’s death, a succession crisis occurred and, ironically, Mary’s son James was next in line as Elizabeth’s double first cousin twice removed. Thus, the Stuarts ascended the English throne and saw the monarchs James I (1603-1625), Charles I (1625-1649), Charles II (1660-1685), James II (1685-1688), William III (1688-1702), Mary II (1688-1694), and Queen Anne (1792-1714) reign.
