A Royal Experiment
The surprising, deliciously dramatic, and ultimately heartbreaking story of King George III’s radical pursuit of happiness in his private life with Queen Charlotte and their 15 children.
Pained by his childhood, George came to the throne aspiring to be a new kind of king - a force for moral good. And to be that new kind of king, he had to be a new kind of man. Against his irresistibly awful family background - of brutal royal intrigue, infidelity, and betrayal - George fervently pursued a radical domestic dream: he would have a faithful marriage and raise loving, educated, and resilient children.
The struggle of King George - along with his wife, Queen Charlotte, and their 15 children - to pursue a passion for family will surprise history buffs and delight a broad swath of biography readers and royal watchers.
