    The single biggest argument against a hereditary monarch is genetics In this 1970 biography of the last Stuart, David Green does his level best to be kind to the poor woman, but it is an uphill slog As with most of the family, Anne maintained a tenacious grip upon the idea that her authority flowed from God As with most of the family, it didn t end well One can make a case of Charles II s having the talent to rule, but James II, Mary II and Anne are pretty much disasters Perhaps the only comforting thing Green can say is that James II s son by Mary of Modena, the Young Pretender, was as much a dope as his stepsister Anne was pathetically dependent upon her favorites The most notorious and gifted of these was Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough, but Green can t muster much enthusiasm for her Who could She was a bitch, and if she was brighter than Sarah Hill or Oxford, it doesn t really compensate for the endless scenes she made with the Queen No one in the biography emerges with much credit, but the fact that Anne surrounded herself with such folk doesn t make her luster any luminous Green writes with a fair amount of condescension for Anne how can you not but there just isn t much there to make a biography all that worthwhile a read.

    Giving birth to 17 children and having only one survive to the age of 10, would make any biographer let alone a reader sympathetic to Queen Anne Add in, her turbulent childhood,the death of her mother, her father s sham of a reign, and the sympathy level increases But Green let s us know, that Anne created many of her own frustrations by her arrogance, stubbornness and her great reliance on Sarah, Duchess of Marlborough The emergence of the two party politics, participation in the War of the Spanish Succession, and the creation of the Act of Union are three of the long lasting events of Anne s reign Very active in her administration and government, Anne was often thwarted in her views due to the politics of the day Her reign did see a stability which allowed for a surge in the arts, literature and economy Relying on letters to and from Lady Masham and the memoirs of the Duchess of Marlborough besides official documents, Green presents a well rounded study of this much, maligned Queen.
