About Anne Hyde, Duchess of York

"Anne Hyde (12 March 1637 – 31 March 1671) was Duchess of York and Albany as the first wife of James, Duke of York, later King James II and VII. Originally Anglican, her father was a lawyer. Anne married James in 1660 after she became pregnant by him, but James is said to have promised to marry her in 1659. The two first met in Holland while Anne was living in the household of James' sister Mary. James and Anne had eight children, but six died in early childhood. The two who survived to adulthood were Lady Mary, who succeeded her father after his deposition during the "Glorious Revolution" of 1688 and Lady Anne, who succeeded her brother-in-law and became the first monarch of Great Britain."
