The Battle of Blenheim, 1704 (1906). Artist: Unknown

The Battle of Blenheim, 1704 (1906). Central portion of the original painting by Louis Laguerre. The Battle of Blenheim (referred to in some countries as the Battle of Hochstadt) was a major battle of the War of the Spanish Succession. The outcome of the battle was a victory for the British and allied army under the Duke of Marlborough and Prince Eugene of Savoy over the French and Bavarians. The French suffered 30, 000 casualties including over 3000 horsemen who drowned trying to flee across the River Danube. On behalf of a grateful nation, Queen Anne gave Marlborough the estate of Woodstock in Oxfordshire, together with an award of £240, 000 to build what would become known as Blenheim Palace. A print from Queen Anne, by Herbert Paul, Goupil and Co, London, 1906.

Chistian Davies (or 'Old Mother Ross'), c1706 (1904). Artist: Unknown

Chistian Davies (or 'Old Mother Ross'), c1706 (1904). Born Christian Cavanagh in Dublin, Christian 'Kit' Davies (1667-1739) served in disguise in the British Army from 1693 to 1697 and again from 1701 until 1706, in an attempt to find her husband, who was also serving in the army, possibly after being pressed into service. She finally located him in 1704 after the Battle of Blenheim, but after discovering him with another woman, decided to remain in the army. In 1706 Davies was wounded at the Battle of Ramillies, suffering a fractured skull, and her identity as a woman was discovered by the surgeon treating her wounds. After this she was discharged from her regiment, the Scots Greys, but the regimental commander agreed that she should continue to be paid while in the care of the army, and as part of her discharge, the regiment's officers paid for a new wardrobe for her. A print from The Girl's Own Annual, 1 October 1904.
