Fact of the Day: Anne Children

Despite seventeen pregnancies in her life, Queen Anne of Great Britain died without any surviving children. She suffered through many miscarriages and stillbirths. The children that lived past birth, did not live very long lives. Thus she was the last monarch from the House of Stuart.

  5. That had to have been horribly devastating to go through. I couldn't even imagine one, let alone 16 more.
