King William's War—1692–1702
Lecture no. 41 from the course: A History of England from the Tudors to the Stuarts
Taught by Professor Robert Bucholz | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
An examination of the economic strategy that enabled victory over France; the Act of Settlement that solved England's succession question—at least on paper—and moved the nation closer to constitutional monarchy, and the two royal deaths that brought England to the brink of yet another war with France. It is a war that will have to be fought by a new ruler after a hunting accident claims William's life.
