Enlightened Princesses.

Caroline, Augusta, Charlotte, and the Shaping of the Modern World.
dited by Joanna Marschner with David Bindman and Lisa L. Ford.
2017. 592S., 528 farb. Abb., Text: Engl. Hardcover
Yale University Press


Caroline of Ansbach (1683?1737), Augusta of Saxe-Gotha (1719?1772), and Charlotte of Mecklenberg-Strelitz (1744?1818) were three German princesses who became Queens Consort?or, in the case of Augusta, Queen in Waiting, Regent, and Princess Dowager?of Great Britain, and were linked by their early years at European princely courts, their curiosity, aspirations, and an investment in Enlightenment thought. This sumptuously illustrated book considers the ways these powerful, intelligent women left enduring marks on British culture through a wide range of activities: the promotion of the court as a dynamic forum of the Hanoverian regime; the enrichment of the royal collection of art; the advancement of science and industry; and the creation of gardens and menageries. Objects included range from spectacular state portraits to pedagogical toys to plant and animal specimens, and reveal how the new and novel intermingled with the traditional.
