Hi,

Thank you for the link to Secret London and all those statues.
I've seen most of them and especially like the Richard the Lionheart and Victoria one at Kensington Palace.
Interesting that Kaiser Wilhelm would erect a statue of William III in Berlin and then give a copy to London!!

Hi Larry
  The info regarding the Kaiser does seem rather odd, however it does check out with other sources on the internet. Coming back to Anne, one of the best representations of her must be the statue at Blenheim. Not many images of this around, (probably no photography allowed in the house).
       I too like others on this thread would like to read a decent bio of her, I'm thinking Edward Gregg or Anne Somerset ?

Has anyone else read James Anderson Winn's book, Queen Anne: Patroness of Arts? I found it fascinating - reveals Anne's full cultural and political influence. Here's my review.
