Críticas:

'It is an admirable tribute to an admirable woman.'-Lucy Worsley, Country Life -- Lucy Worsley Country Life 'Joanna Marschner's meticulous study shows how the queen used her patronage to strengthen the new royal family's libraries, also laying out gardens and in particular fostering the antiquarian ethos that was a distinctive feature of Georgian life. Voltaire wrote: "I must say that, despite all her titles and crowns, this princess was born to encourage the arts and the well-being of mankind." This biography reinforces his judgement and throws interesting new light on Georgian England.'-John Martin Robinson, The Art Newspaper -- John Martin Robinson The Art Newspaper 'Splendidly illustrated, this book represents a major statement of the achievements of an overlooked figure, and contributes to the current reconsideration of the role of the queens consort...Queen Caroline furthers the ongoing reassessment of the cultural and intellectual role of women in Enlightenment Europe.'-Giles Waterfield, Apollo Magazine -- Giles Waterfield Apollo Magazine 'These new biographies are in keeping with this eighteenth-century drive to treat cultural history as seriously as political and military history. They are major advances - both in scholarship and human empathy - on the standard works'-Ophelia Field, TLS. -- Ophelia Field TLS
