Jacobite consorts


Jacobite consorts

Jacobite consorts are those who were married to a Jacobite pretender to the thrones of England, Scots and Ireland since the abdication of James II in 1688. By Jacobites they are thus regarded, if female, as rightful Queen Consorts of England, Scots and Ireland. Since the death of Marie-Jenke, Duchess of Bavaria in 1983, there has been no Jacobite consort; the current pretender, Franz, Duke of Bavaria, is not married.

After 1807, the succession passed from the House of Stuart, and none of the Jacobite heirs since has actually claimed the thrones of England and Scotland or incorporated the arms of England and Scotland in their coats-of-arms.

Henry Benedict Stuart (pretender 1788-1807, as Henry IX & I) and Franz, Duke of Bavaria (pretender 1996-present, as Francis II) never married (Henry was a Catholic priest, bishop, and cardinal). Marie Clotilde of France, wife of Charles Emmanuel IV of Sardinia (pretender 1807-1819, as Charles IV), died before her husband became pretender, as did Duchess Marie Gabrielle in Bavaria, first wife of Rupprecht, Crown Prince of Bavaria (Robert I & IV).
