founding, h 36.3cm More details

After invading England, William III and Mary became its joint king and queen in 1689. William also remained stadtholder of the Netherlands. This small equestrian statue, modelled on a sculpture now in Bristol, shows the king in the guise of a Roman general. In reality, William was a poor horseman. In 1702 he fell from his horse and died from his injuries.
