Editor says, in this post we repurpose content from Alternate History, Wikipedia and "William and Mary: Heroes of the Glorious Revolution" by John John Van der Kiste. William died of pneumonia, a complication from a broken collarbone following a fall from his horse, Sorrel. Because his horse had stumbled into a mole's burrow, many Jacobites toasted "the little gentleman in the black velvet waistcoat". Editorial comments are entered in [light green] typeface.
