George III's children
King George III and Queen Charlotte had 15 children, all but two surviving to maturity. This book describes the relationships between the siblings and chronologically recounts the life of the family; the intriguing characters who surrounded the royal court; and the princes' liaisons which resulted in the extraordinary situation that, when Princess Charlotte of Wales died unexpectedly in 1817, George III, at the age of 79, did not have a single legitimate grandchild. Three of his children then hurried to the altar.
