British maid of honor to the Queen. It was said of her, "It is hardly possible for a woman to have less wit or more beauty."

She was the elder daughter of Walter Stuart, M.D., who was the third son of Lord Blantyre. As Catholics and royalists, they left for France in 1649, not returning until the restoration. Frances returned with the Queen Mother in 1662, at 15, to be the maid-of-honor for the new queen.

At 20, she made a love-marriage which lasted for five years until her husband drowned in 1672, leaving her childless. Though the king sought to make her a mistress, she kept him at arm's length for years. Remaining chaste, she neither married nor took a lover but fulfilled her duties loyally to Queen Catherine and the royal family.

Stuart died on 15 October 1702 at age 55.
