<p>Anne Wharton is Chapter XIII of my biography of Thomas Wharton, 5th Baron, 1st Earl, and 1st Marquess of Wharton (Tom Wharton to the English political world of the Glorious Revolution period). The story covers crucial episodes in Wharton's personal and political life. It deals with the health of his talented wife Anne, her affection for her uncle and mentor the Earl of Rochester, her sojourn in Paris in 1681, and Wharton's own brief visits there. On political themes the story covers the famous Oxford Parliament of March 1681-the turning point, as matters turned out, in the contest between Charles II and his Whig opponents, Tom Wharton's political allies.</p> <p>I like to think that the narrative will be understandable and interesting to anyone who can read, though it will be most interesting to those who have read the preceding chapters and/or those who are already soaked in English political history. I have included the lists of abbreviations and short titles to help specialists follow me through the lengthy footnotes. The lists pertain to the whole book, not merely this chapter.</p>
