Description

    King William III Of England Manuscript Document Signed "William R" as king. One page, in Dutch, folio, 8" x 12.5" October 12, 1696. Official document with very fine paper seal affixed. William III (1650-1702), Prince of Orange, reigned as king of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 1689 to 1702. He was also steward of the United Netherlands from 1672 to 1702. William III remains most noted for having fought France, the dominant power in Europe, to a standstill in three wars. In this process he reunited his native Netherlands and became king of England. In his English role William fostered the legal bulwarks of the Glorious Revolution of 1688: religious toleration for Protestant dissenters, a prescribed monarchy, and parliamentary partnership with the Crown concerning legislation. As William drew England into his wars against France, he concluded more than a century's isolation for England and initiated a series of victories that later yielded Great Britain a worldwide empire. A very bold autograph of this king, minor pinhole-size separation at center fold, else about fine condition.
