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.
