In the history of the English monarchy their have been six kings and one queen who are believed to have been homosexual or bisexual. They defied the religious, homophobic times in which they lived and many paid dearly for it. They may have worn crowns and wielded power but at the end of the day they were human too. Here are their stories...
William II Rufus (1087 – 1100)
Richard I (1189-1199)
Edward II (1307-1327)
Richard II (1377-1400)
James I (1603 – 1625)
William III (1689-1702)
Anne (1702-1714)
