David Loades explores the twisting path whereby Princess Mary, daughter of a rejected wife and capricious father, endured disfavour, personal crisis, house arrest, political scheming and potential exile, to emerge as a queen with huge popular support. But her reign was to end in personal and public tragedies. Loades's probing yet sympathetic account reveals an intriguing personality, impelled by deep-set beliefs, but uncertain how to behave in a 'man's' role.
