★ William III and his wife Mary II (daughter of James II), were proclaimed joint sovereigns of England in 1688 following the Glorious Revolution.

★ They were accepted by Scotland the following year, but Ireland, which was mainly Catholic, remained loyal to James II. 

★ William led an army into Ireland and James was defeated at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. 

★ Mary II died in 1694 and William ruled alone until his death in 1702.
