Italian-British royalty, the second wife of James II of England. The daughter of Alfonso IV, Duke of Modena, Mary was raised a devout Roman Catholic. The marriage was diplomatically arranged and fulfilled by proxy in September 1673, two months before she arrived in England. It was feared that she would have a religious influence on James, but her influence appeared to be negligible.

They had seven children of whom the first five died (between 1675-1682; assumed because of James II having had venereal disease) and the sixth, a male, was believed to have been switched with a live infant for political reasons. This false rumor gave protestant ruler William of Orange a pretext to invade England in November 1688. Mary escaped with her son to France on December 11th and James followed shortly after to flee the revolution.

Mary died 5/07/1718, Saint-Germaine-en-Laye, France.
