+JJ Lemire, despite being born in Hanover, George was a legitimate heir. His grandmother was the eldest daughter of James I.  It all goes back to the 'religion wars' as I call them, that had been going on in the British Isles since Tudor times. The Act of Settlement of 1701 formalised that the succession should pass to a Protestant heir, should William III & Mary II, or Queen Anne, not have any surviving children. When this came to pass, a search down the family tree showed George to be the first, nearest in blood and Protestant heir. The actual heir, James Stewart, son of James I, was Catholic.

This week on Fall in Love with History , I tell the tale of an encounter between Florence Nightingale and a sheepdog - that had a rather influential effect on her career.
