...but the picture illustrating the article about Queen Anne uncannily resembles the ex Mrs Henry Tudor, nee Cleeves, rather than Mrs George Hanover, nee Stuart.

Great catch! You are absolutely right that the image accompanying the entry on Queen Anne was a reproduction of a painting of the wrong Anne. The image has been removed.

The inclusion of the image reflected a mistake in photo research. Thank you for reporting it.

Not to be too much of a nitpicker but Queen Anne was Mrs. George of Denmark. George Hanover--The First, that is, was Queen Anne's distant cousin. Mrs. George Hanover the first was the pitiable Sophia Dorothea, who was imprisoned for life by her doting hubby for having an affair with a dashing soldier.
