The German Hanoverian Queens of Great Britain and later the United Kingdom had some of the most epic royal matrimonial brawls in history. One brought enlightenment thinking to court. One was dear friends with Marie Antoinette and endured her husband’s decades of madness. And one got locked out of her husband’s coronation. The Hanoverian Queens consort were:
Sophia Dorothea of Celle (not technically a Queen but we have to talk about the wife who was imprisoned for life after her lover was murdered)
Caroline of Ansbach
Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz
Caroline of Brunswick
Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen

The lives of the many Kings and handful of Queens Regnant who have held dominion over the kingdom of England, and later the United Kingdom take center stage in history. But the lives of their spouses and mothers are often relegated to the wings. In this series we will learn the stories of the many Queens Consort and the handful of male consorts who have been at the monarchs’ sides. Through love, hate, adultery and sometimes murder these women and men have played vital roles in the history of England.
