Queen Mary II of England (30 April, 166228 December, 1694) was Queen of England from 1689 until her death. She was the wife of King William III. When the couple was begging for protection under Muggle law, the British Ministry of Magic failed to send a delegation to them, which contributed to the introduction of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy in 1692.

Etymology

The name "Mary" is the usual English form of Maria, which was the Latin form of the New Testament Greek names Μαριαμ (Mariam) and Μαρια (Maria) - the spellings are interchangeable - which were from the Hebrew name מִרְיָם (Miryam). The meaning is not known for certain, but there are several theories including "sea of bitterness", "rebelliousness", and "wished for child". However it was most likely originally an Egyptian name, perhaps derived in part from mry "beloved" or mr "love".
