Inhaltsangabe: The last book in this magnificent Georgian saga. It was necessary for the Prince of Wales to marry, and his victim was the unconventional Caroline of Brunswick. Caroline, already plagued by scandals in her personal life, would rather have married a Major in her father's army but this was not to be. Arriving in England she finds her bridegroom's mistress waiting to undermine her position and to spy on her. The Prince is determined to hate her, and humiliates her at every possible occasion even after she has given him a daughter. Meanwhile, her generous nature wins over the love of the people, leading her husband to resent her even more. Even her new family, with the exception of the half-mad king, offers her no support. Caroline becomes more independent and excessively extravagant as she tries to negotiate the traps laid out for her by a hostile court. Eventually she leaves, and much to the delight of social gossips continues to provide them with scandals and amusements long after the dust of her time at court has settled.
