Anne, Queen of Great Britain, was a tragic figure, if you disregard her Royalty and look at her as a woman.
Suffering from gout and other maladies whose names were not yet known at the time, gradually she became lame and consequently obese.
She was pregnant 17 times in 17 years and had miscarried or given birth to stillborn children at least twelve times.
Her only son who survived his first year, died at the age of 11.
Clearly, she betrayed her role as a monarch, to deliver a heir.
Still, the ruling powers of her day found a solution. Royalty still exists.
