Elizabeth Stuart (19 August 1596 – 13 February 1662) was, as the wife of Frederick V, Elector Palatine, Electress Palatine, and briefly, Queen of Bohemia. Because her husband’s reign in Bohemia lasted for just one winter, Elizabeth often is referred to as The Winter Queen. She was the second child and eldest daughter of James VI and I, King of Scots, England, and Ireland, and his wife, Anne of Denmark. She was four years older than her brother Charles, who became Charles I of Britain and Ireland.

With the demise of the Stuart dynasty in 1714, her grandson succeeded to the British throne as George I of Great Britain, initiating the Hanover line of succession. The reigning British monarch, Elizabeth II, is Elizabeth Stuart's direct descendant of the tenth and eleventh generation through different paths. Most other European royal families, including those of Spain, Denmark, Norway, Belgium, Luxemburg, the Netherlands and Sweden, as well as those formerly of Greece, Romania, Germany, and Russia, are also descended from Elizabeth Stuart.
