John William Waterhouse’s “The Lady of Shalott” - 1888
The Lady of Shalott There she weaves by night and day A magic web with colours gay. She has heard a whisper say, A curse is on her if she stay To look down to Camelot. She knows not what the curse may be, And so she weaveth steadily, And little other care heat she, The Lady of Shalott.
Anne - The first Queen of a united Great Britain, Anne was the daughter of James II, younger sister of Mary II, and cousin and sister-in-law of William III. Despite numerous pregnancies, she bore no heir. She left her crown to her Protestant Hanovarian cousins rather than the Catholic Jacobite claimants (descended from James II and Mary of Modena). Anne reigned 8 March 1702 until 1 August 1714.
