(From the publisher):
Princess Caroline of Brunswick was twenty-six years old and people were saying that she would never be married. But a grand destiny was about to unfold for the lively Princess, as the bride of England's handsome Prince of Wales, soon to be Regent and later King George IV of England. Unfortunately, although Caroline fell madly in love with her charming royal spouse, his own affections had been stolen years before by the beautiful Maria Fitzherbert - to whom, it was whispered, he was actually secretly married.
So, as a lonely, unsophisticated outsider in her husband's dissipated circle, Caroline determines to live her own life. Her reckless search for affection and revenge infuriates the King, shocks the court, delights the common people, and culminates in one of the most famous court cases in history -- in which the Queen of England stands trial, charged with adultery.
