QUEENS OF GEORGIAN BRITAIN


QUEENS OF GEORGIAN BRITAIN

CATHERINE CURZON    Book Number: 90380    Product format: Hardback

Grab your nosegay and visit the deathbed of Caroline of Ansbach, an illustrious political queen. Walk the lonely corridors of Kew with Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz as her insane husband rages and foams in his chambers. Uncover the scandalous excitement of Caroline of Brunswick's tumultuous marriage to George IV, from drunken wedding night to a very public humiliation. Meet the princess who never got her crown, doomed romance, murder and intrigue that condemned Sophia Dorothea of Celle to a gilded cage for 30 years. Once upon a time there were four Kings called George, who, thanks to a quirk of fate, ruled Great Britain for over a century. Hailing from Germany, these occasionally mad, bad and infamous sovereigns presided over a land of turmoil, yet what about the remarkable women who were crowned alongside them? From the forgotten princess locked in a tower to an illustrious regent, a devoted consort and a notorious party girl, the queens of Georgian Britain lived lives of scandal, romance and drama whether dipping into politics or cruising on the shores of Italy. From lonely childhoods to glittering palaces, family feuds, smallpox, strapping soldiers and plenty of scheming, these are the queens who shaped an era. 220pp, 32 illustrations.
