Best Answer

James Francis Edward Stuart (1688-1766), the 'old pretender', son and heir of James VII of Scotland and II of England and Ireland, never ruled either Kingdom. In fact his birth in June 1688 is held to have precipitated the Glorious Revolution of that year, when his father was forced to flee Britain and William of Orange and his wife Mary were invited to rule in his place, becoming joint monarchs King William III of England and II of Scotland and Queen Mary II.
