Short biography
Lady Anne Halkett (née Murray), a 17th-century religious writer and teacher, is best known to history as the daring woman who helped rescue James, Duke of York (later King James II) from captivity during the English Civil War by disguising him as a woman. After she was widowed in 1670, she returned to practising medicine, as she had done in wartime, and took up teaching. She wrote her autobiography, drawing on her old diaries, composed religious meditations over a span of more than 50 years, and wrote Instructions for Youth.
