This is the last trial in Volume III of the Folio Society’s collection of historical Trials.
This one involves Queen Caroline, the wife of King George IV. She had been married to the Prince Regent for some years, and she had her income and status. Of late she had taken up living on the Continent to avoid him. When George III died, the new king decided to cut off her allowance and revoke her title as Queen.
She decided to take him to court for it. She had the sympathy of most, since George was so unpopular. In the end she won the case, but died soon afterwards herself. It reminds one a bit of the problems with Lady Diana and the Prince of Wales these days.
