"The Favourite" spin around the queen Annas love life, but not with her husband, prince Georg of Denmark. In the movie is her closest adviser, Sarah Churchill, played by Rachel Weisz, also her lover.

for Example has the queen 17 rabbits as pets in the movie. They are supposed to represent her 17 children, who were either spontanabortert or dead by birth or later in life.
- So clearly, one would not found kjæledyrkaniner running around in a royal bedroom. They were considered as food and pests in the 1700's, writes historian Hannah Grieg in the History Extra.
Also she has been an advisor for the film."Devotion"
the Story of the queen's love affair, however, is not taken out of clean air. A close friendship between Churchill and the queen is well documented.

She gave an account of his opinion on the relationship to the BBC in 2015.
If you read the letter she wrote to Sarah (Churchill) as a young woman, is the passionate declarations of affection. Perhaps you may believe completely immediately that they had an affair, " she says.A lover number two
Furthermore, the producers of the film taken hold of a reputation, based on a documented feud between the queen and Churchill.

When queen Anne ascended the throne as 37-year-old, she was heavily plagued by arthritis and being overweight. Over the years she increasingly have selvmedisinert with brandy, which she drank from teacups - which led to it was often made jokes about "the queen's cold tea" by the court.Norway's great polar hero disappeared without a trace and was never found again.

He refers to her father, James II, who was king for only three years before he was deposed in The "Glorious Revolution" in 1688.
- When it comes to strong female leaders, we could not found any better in such times of crisis."Intrigue and pain"
Director Lanthimos has chosen to stick to the sphere around the queen and the court, but the film grabs still engage in multiple aspects of the 1700-century the united Kingdom, writes Grieg.
- what It says on the game to be the favorite in the court, not just personal gain or the girls ' alliances and vanity. There is control over state power and politics, " he says.
