1660 Queen Anne, by David Green (read 5 Sep 1981) I looked for this book in December 1974 but did not find it and read Green's biography of the Duchess of Marlborough instead. But now I found this and have read it. Obviously it covers much the same ground as the biography of the Duchess. Green's style is so idiomatic and quotes so much from sources that I find it really hard to follow unless one reads quite carefully. Queen Anne was born Feb 6, 1665 at St. James' Palace to James II (then duke of York) and his first wife Anne Hyde. She succeeded to the throne on William III's death on 8 Mar 1702, and died 1 Aug 1714. It is a fantastic time, and I really would like to have the time told in a more expressive idiom. I can't help but think that Queen Anne was a very ordinary woman and that any greatness she had was accidental. I would next like to read a biography of George I--[but I didn't until August 1985, when I read George I Elector and King, by Ragnhild Hatton.] ( )
