A detailed, chronological account of the princesses and consort Queens of the Georgian era, from Sophia (mother of George I) who died shortly before she would have become Queen, to Adelaide, consort to William IV, whose failure to provide an heir ensured the succession passed to his niece, Queen Victoria. During this period, an array of colorful personalities came and went--George I's ill-fated wife, Sophia Dorothea of Celle, who was imprisoned for adultery. The equally tragic Caroline Matilda, Queen of Denmark and sister of George III, who married an incipient schizophrenic, saw her lover put to death, and was divorced and imprisoned, released after pressure from her brother, only to die from typhoid or scarlet fever at 23. This book also looks at the life of the astute Caroline, consort of George II, who during the years of Robert Walpole's premiership was Queen regnant in all but name.
