Character description

Caroline Amelia Elizabeth of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel (1768–1821) married her first cousin George, Prince of Wales, in 1795. The couple produced a daughter, Princess Charlotte, born in 1796, but the marriage was unhappy and they did not live together. When her husband succeeded to the throne as George IV, Caroline was barred from the coronation ceremony; she died a few weeks later.
