Life in the Georgian Court

£7.99

Available in Stock

When Queen Anne dies, in 1714, George, Elector of Hannover, accedes to the British throne. Organized in four main acts – Childhood, Marriage, Scandal and Death – rather than a comprehensive history, this is a collection of true stories from the Georgian era. Romantic, tragic, eccentric and sometimes gory, the tales are engagingly told, revealing the real people beneath the wigs and pomp of the period. There’s a useful timeline at the front, and a section of black-and-white portraits.
