    Queen Anne was the last of the Stewarts? Nice way of avoiding the fact she was not, and that the Hanovarians were usurpers. Who ever wrote this pro-British article obviously ignored the entire Jacobite era, and it's rebellions. 1689, 1715, 1719, 1745.

    @EscoSesDoidao
    Seriously? You're not still fighting a war from the 18th century are you? Like it or not, Queen Anne was the last Stewart to be King or Queen of Britain, and the last anybody to be King or Queen of England or Scotland.

    The idea that it's pro-British is laughable, it's pro- selling coins to collectors to make a profit for the (Falklands in this case) government.
