Whether their husbands judged them 'the most wonderful wife ever man had' (George II describing Caroline of Anspach) or 'the vilest wretch the world ever was cursed with' (George IV on Caroline of Brunswick), the consorts of British kings never had very easy lives, however rich their material rewards. Hichens tells the stories of eight queens from Caroline of Anspach to Elizabeth, the Queen Mother and the 'joker in the pack', Wallis Simpson.
