7th August 2021 is the 200th anniversary of the death of Queen Caroline, the estranged wife of George IV.

7th August 2021 is the 200th anniversary of the death of Queen Caroline, the estranged wife of George IV. An eccentric and licentious Caroline won the overwhelming support of the British public even when she was put on trial in the House of Lords charged with adultery – the so called “Queen Caroline Affair”. However, by the time of her death, she had been publicly humiliated and largely abandoned. Her coffin bore the epitaph “Caroline of Brunswick: The Injured Queen of England”. Join Librarian Ann Martin as we look at Caroline, her ill-fated marriage and her unlikely role as the standard bearer of the oppressed in Georgian Britain.

Please note: Further information for joining online via Zoom will be provided to attendees 24 hours prior to the event, when bookings end.
