Sophia of the Palatinate, more commonly referred to as Sophia of Hanover, was born October 14,1630. She was the eldest surviving child of Elizabeth of Bohemia, daughter of James I. Sophia of Hanover was the only suitable choice as heir to the British throne and was made heiress presumptive by parliament in 1701.
