Summary Overweight, mentally unstable, diseased and infertile. In this series, Dr Lucy Worsley turns the familiar history of our monarchy on its head - revealing our rulers' human frailties, weaknesses and unearthing the truth behind some most mysterious royal deaths. This week, Lucy takes a look at the medical histories of the later Stuarts, from the exile of James II and the succession of William and Mary to the beginning of a new dynasty, the Hanoverians.
