Did You Know Queen Anne Was a Lesbian?

Queen Anne Stuart of the House of Tudor, who ruled England from 1702 to 1714, was married to Prince George of Denmark. But, as happens with many royal marriages, it seems George didn’t quite warm the “cockles of her heart.”


Anne had what’s called a dull role in English history. People said she was dull. And yet, she helped England transition to Protestantism, and was the last Stuart to hold the throne.

That’s not all, though. It’s said that Anne had romantic relationships with many women – most of which have been revealed on account of letters to and by Anne.

The most famous of Anne’s lovers was the aristocrat Sarah Churchill, who was a descendant of Mr. Winston Churchill. She had a 25-year relationship with Anne. In a letter to Sarah, Anne wrote:

“I hope I shall get a moment or two to be with my dear . . . that I may have one embrace, which I long for more than I can express.”

Their relationship ended bitterly, however, on account of Sarah’s allegedly “manipulative” behavior. It seems she could have learned a lot from her descendant Winston.


Sarah wasn’t Anne’s last lover, though. Way to get back on the horse, Anne! But then she died at age 49, ending both her reign and her romantic escapades.

      1. On a TV show called “Call The Midwife” there is a lesbian couple and they said back in the 1950’s and 60’s homosexuality was illegal/unnatural but no one even thought about women in such a way.
