The Lost Queen, The Tragedy of a Royal Marriage
The Lost Queen The Tragedy of a Royal Marriage Author:Norah Lofts A novel based on the life of George III's sister, Princess Caroline-Matilda, whose marriage brought her to a throne and whose secret love brought her to disaster. — With careful attention to the historical record, Norah Lofts has recreated Caroline-Matilda's life in a tale that vividly evokes the stark contrasts of 18th century Denmark: the cruel... more »ty, poverty, and oppression of existence under an absolute monarch sinking into madness; the royal court with its pomp and pageantry, and the hatreds and intrigues that swirled around the young, lovely figure who was, briefly, its queen.
Most of the events here described actually took place: all but three of the characters existed.
