CHARLOTTE AUGUSTA
Description
The tragic story of the doomed romance between Charlotte, heir to the English throne, and Leopold, uncle of Queen Victoria and first King of the Belgians. A story that Jane Austen famously declined to tell, declaring: I could no more write a romance than an epic poem. Charlotte was the only legitimate royal child of her generation, and her death in childbirth - the result of medical incompetence and ill-fortune - was followed by an unseemly scramble to produce a substitute heir. Queen Victoria was the product. Chambers masterfully demonstrates how the personal and the political inevitably collide in scheming post-Napoleonic Europe, offering a vivid and sympathetic portrait of a couple whose lives are in many ways not their own. From the day she was born, Charlotte won the hearts of her subjects and yet behind the scenes she was used, abused and victimised by rivalries.
