This is an original 1902 black and white photogravure of Queen Caroline (May 17, 1768-Aug. 7, 1821), Queen consort of King George IV of the United Kingdom as a contractual marriage to alleviate the enormous debt George IV had amassed. Born as Caroline of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel (Caroline Amelia Elizabeth), she was also Princess of Wales. Eventually, she would tire of her duties in England and relocate to Italy when George IV accused her of adultery and attempted to divorce her, a move which was met with failure as she was vastly more loved by the people than her husband.
