(9) With the death of David II, the House of Stanley did come to a rather anticlimactic conclusion. David, from the death of his brother, was the sole remaining member of the line and thus much was rested upon his young shoulders, only for it all to be cast asunder with his death in 1730. The Netherlands formally abolished the Stadtholdership, which from the reign of Henry IX had been largely titular by any means, and did choose a Republican governance. Even the Principality of Orange fell to the wayside, with the King of France; François V, using the hastily made excuse of possible uprisings to occupy the Principality.
and so, from an informal empire spanning noncontiguous parts of Europe, the House of Stanley came to an end. In England herself, David II was succeeded by the son of his eldest sister.
Princess Margaret, born in 1679, had firstly married Prince Eberhard Louis of Wurttemberg in 1693, but his death in 1698 ended their brief union, and so after a brief tour of the Holy Roman Empire and France, Princess Margaret returned to England, where she did meet, and promptly fell in love with Jean Louis Ligonier, a Officer of the English Army from a Huguenot family who migrated but the year prior. Within the year, the pair were married and as part of his Coronation Honours in 1702, Henry X and II had granted to Ligonier the title of Duke of Ligonier and formally granted him the position of Colonel-in-Chief of the Yeomen Guard, and the year after, in 1703, a son was born to the pair; Louis Henry.
It was in 1711 that the Princess Margaret fell ill, and did pass in the winter of that year, leaving her Husband and son, and five years after that the Duke of Ligonier himself did pass, in a fateful accident on the Isle of Dogs, where the musket of a Hunter did hit the Duke as he rode along the Riverside., and so the young Louis Henry was now Duke of Ligonier. For much of his life, there was no expectation to be the throne, as David II was young enough to have issue a plenty, and so the 2nd Duke of Ligonier had the kfie if many an English nobleman, serving in the army, undergoing a true noble education, but it was in 1730, as the young Duke was on the Isle of Wight, when he was made aware of his uncles passing, and so he began to sail hence to London.
With his Coronation, the young King did take his middle name; Henry, and thus was crowned as Henry XI of England. After the coronation, He did turn to his Advisors and was said to have handed them the reigns, stating "you may as well take the reigns of this kingdom, for rule is as foreign to me as the Land of the Rus".
Henry XI of England
For the next Decade and a half, the King watched while the Advisors of his uncles and grandfather managed and governed in his name. It was only in 1746, with the passing of the chief minister; Lord Stockton, that the king was asked to assume the rule of the kingdom by his council, and so Henry XI did begin his rule in Ernest. It was in 1735 that he had taken a wife, the daughter of the 2nd Duke of Bolton, and had a many great children with her; eleven pregnancies in total, with seven children surviving, but alas the later years were not kind to the children, and thus only three of them did make it past the age of twenty.
It was in the year of 1764, at the age of 61, that Henry XI did pass, and his reign is remembered dearly for the peace and mercantile prosperity it brought. He was succeeded by _________.

Something I noticed about the tree is that in regards to Richard’s birth. He was born in 1776, 15 years after the marriage of his grandparents. So, if we assume that his father Henry, Prince of Wales was born in 1762 and married in 1775, Henry would be fourteen years of age when his eldest son is born.
@1-800-wandsthetic they did mention it.William always preferred his naval duties to his regnal ones, and the outbreak of World War Two in 1939, found him throwing himself into escort duty for supply lines across the Atlantic, much to his ministers’ horror, who feared greatly for Britain should he be killed, given his only heir was a fifteen-month-old child.
