Anne was the end of Stuart monarchy line which came from Scotland to unite the Crowns of England and Scotland (hence the new name United Kingdom as the official name of the British isles). In searching for a new Protestant royal family, (that was not Catholic for an Act of Parliament no longer allowed Catholics to reign in England) The closest they could get was the old Electress of Hanover, Sophia. She, however, passed away leaving the inheritance on her son, George I. He spoke no English nor did he care to learn. He spent most of his life in Hanover.
