A scarce double prospect of the sieges of Cork and Kinsale by William III in 1690. The defeat of the Catholic James II during the Battle of Boyne after the Glorious Revolution, was followed by the capture of Jacobites in Cork and Kinsale.
William III (1650 – 1702) or Willem, Prince of Orange, governed Holland, Zeeland, Utrecht, Guelders, and Overijssel of the Dutch Republic as Stadtsholder from 1672 onwards. From 1689 he reigned as William III over England and Ireland, and as William II over Scotland. He married the English Princess Mary (1662-1694) in 1677, and after the Glorious Revolution became joint ruler over England, Ireland and Scotland with her in 1689.
