William of Orange and Princess Mary were declared joint monarchs in a ceremony at the Guildhall in London on 13 February 1689. This print celebrates their accession as William III and Mary II. Sceptre in hand, William points to the sun breaking through the clouds, its rays shining onto the gathered crowds to herald their reign as a new dawn for the nation.
