Synopsis:

This account of the lives of Caroline of Brunswick, wife of George, Prince of Wales and Prince Regent and her daughter Princess Charlotte, is a saga of passion and pathos, tragedy and black comedy, feuding and fighting and is set in Regency England against a background of Europe in turmoil. The marriage of the Prince of Wales, who was renowned for his intemperance and hedonism, to his cousin Caroline in 1795 was a preordained disaster. The couple split up after a year of the birth of their daughter, Charlotte Augusta in 1796. Subsequently, the Princess set up house in Blackheath and led a defiantly outrageous lifestyle leading to a series of increasingly lurid scandals. The Princess Charlotte, George III's only legitimate grandchild and thus his eventual heiress became a weapon used by both sides in the continuing battle between her parents. Alison Plowden is also the author of an Elizabethan quartet and six other historical novels including "Lady Jane Grey and the House of Suffolk".
