Dust wrapper, unclipped, has light edgewear and rubbing; white flaps have yellowed. ; The unhappy queen was Caroline Amelia Elizabeth of Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel, the queen-consort of George IV, a man who had already secretly married and did not want to be married to Caroline. After the birth of their daughter, Princess Caroline, George returned to his first wife and spent all his energy attempting to discredit and humiliate Caroline including a trumped up charge of adultery that caused a protracted trial in the House of Lords. Her story is an account 'written by a distinguished lawyer of a unique legal situation and a story that even now has the power to excite astonishment, indignation and pity.'
