Posthumous son of William II of Orange and Mary, the sister of Charles II and Jacques II, he married his cousin Mary (1662-1694). Prince of Orange at his birth, he became stadtholder of the Netherlands after the murder of the brothers De Witt in 1672. He succeeded his uncle and stepfather, Jacques II as King of England in 1688 and reigned first with his wife Mary until 1694, and then only from 1694 to his death in 1702.
