constanius Posted February 22, 2009 Report Share Posted February 22, 2009 Accession of Queen Caroline Consort of George IV. Bronze 54mm by G.Mills after P.Rouw 1820. BHM# 1019 Whilst researching Queen Caroline I have come to the conclusion she was an innocent victim of George's desire to be rid of her. Just a few things I noted; She supported 9 orphans paid for their lodging, clothed, feed and taught them herself. She spoke german, english, french and italian. She played the harp & harpsicord. She painted. Studied geography, astronomy, logic but loved history (visited battlefields). She even made some of her own furnishing. She designed her own garden, planted potatoes and sold them. She was less formal (read stuffy) than British royalty and nobility. Consequently she did not play the 'court games' or observe the 'court protocol' which made her unpopular at court.
