- Early Life
- Possible Marriages and Marriage to George
Caroline of Ansbach was born in Ansbach in Germany, the daughter of Johann Friedrich, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach, and his second wife, Princess Eleanor Erdmuthe Louise of Saxe-Eisenach. Orphaned at an early age, Caroline grew up an intelligent, cultured and attractive woman, and was much sought-after as a bride.
She turned down the King of Spain because it would cause her to renounce the Protestant faith. Shortly after she met the son of the elector of HanoverThey married in 1705. Over the next 30 years they had nine children.
George I of Great Britain died 11 June 1727. George Augustus ascended the throne as George II of Great Britain. Caroline held George on a string. When the Prime Minister Sir Robert Walpole met with the Kinghe and Caroline had signs to communicate with each other. George never noticed. Both the King and Queen truly disliked their eldest son Frederick, Prince of Wales. Caroline once called him the Greatest Ass the world has ever known. They preferred Prince William, Duke of Cumberlandover Fredrick.
Caroline alongside Prince Albert, and Mary of Modena is regarded one of the most powerful British consorts in History.

Added some material to this page -- please note the genealogical sources are contradictory, some assigning Caroline an extra pregnancy. They tend to list William Augustus twice, once with only a death date. I have corrected this in the article.--Marysunshine05:45, 24 April 2006 (UTC) Her husband was not created Duke of Cambridge until 1706, and they were married in 1705. What was her title in the intervening year? It is not listed. TysK06:19, 21 June 2006 (UTC) 1. HSH Hereditary Princess Caroline of Hanover, Duchess of Brunswick and Lunenburg would be my guess, however, titles of that era are iffy at best. Charles 06:26, 21 June 2006 (UTC) 1.1. Or would it be HSH Caroline, Hereditary Princess of Hanover, Duchess of Brunswick and Luneburg? That would be more in keeping with her husband's title at the time. TysK 05:31, 23 June 2006 (UTC) 1.1.1. Hmm, I'm looking more into it, and it seems Hanover wasn't an official title --- I could be wrong though. Another guess would be HSH Caroline,...
What languages did Caroline speak? It would improve the article if her language abilities were included. As she was German born, one might assume some form of German and French which was customary at that time. What was her level of English?--TGC55 (talk) 07:16, 10 April 2010 (UTC) 1. Hello @TGC55:. The answer to your question is that she spoke all three languages: German, French and English. 1. She was brought up in Ansbach, then part of the German-speaking Holy Roman Empire, so her native language was German. As a member of the nobility, she spoke French, which was very much a lingua franca at that time. There are many surviving letters that she wrote in French, including some to her own children. 1. When she became betrothed to George Augustus of Hanover (the heir presumptive to the British throne) she deliberately set out to Anglicise herself as much as possible. While still in Hanover, she encouraged British visitors, she read extensively about English and British history and p...
Just heard on BBC Radio 4 that Queen Caroline died due to medical maltreatment of an umbilical hernia. She'd developed the hernia after childbirth, and it had gone untreated until a loop of bowel protruded through the hernia (but still under the skin, no doubt). Today a doctor would push the bowel in and patch the hernia, but her physicians *cut* the protruding bowel. And repeated the procedure each day until she died (about 10 days). Hence the verse from Alexander Pope: Here lies, wrapt up in forty thousand towels,The only proof that Caroline had bowels.- Alexander Pope, Epitaph on Queen Caroline. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 08:40, 22 May 2010 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Indeed, I recently watched an episode of "The Georgians", a historical tv series, presented by Dr Lucy Worsley which discussed Caroline's death. It has set me wondering about the accuracy of the account presented here, as according to Worsley she died as a result of the snipping through of the stran...
There were Julian/Gregorian changes around her time. Are her vital date given in the Julian or Gregorian calendar? -- Jack of Oz ... speak! ... 13:22, 21 June 2010 (UTC) 1. What should we do with dates? I've kept them as they were, which is predominantly Old Style, though the table of Children is in New Style. For events in Hanover after 1700, I've put both. 2. One allied question: What's Frederick's birthday? Weir says 2/3 November (OS), which would match his article (13 November NS) but Van der Kiste says 20/31 October. DrKiernan (talk) 10:40, 8 February 2011 (UTC) 2.1. London Gazette announces the birth was "a little before Six a Clock in the Evening" on the 2 November OS . DrKiernan (talk) 14:43, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
You know, I've never liked those instances where a male consort is indicated as the last person to hold the title of Queen consort! I don't think we should say "untitled" either, as he did have some titles, though not related to his position as consort. I'd prefer using one of the below (or similar). DrKiernan (talk) 18:54, 13 October 2011 (UTC) I am in favour of the second. We do not list Madame de Maintenon as successor of Maria Theresa of Spain; George, while not married to the Queen morganatically, was in a position more similar to Madame de Maintenon's than to a queen consort's, since he held no title derived from his marriage to the Queen. Surtsicna (talk) 19:08, 13 October 2011 (UTC) 1. I would also suggest removing the "Electress consort of Hanover" box. What purpose does it serve? She is notable for having been queen, not an electress. Surtsicna (talk) 13:54, 15 October 2011 (UTC)
By May of the following year, Caroline thought herself pregnant.... Had to smile when I read this. "Thinking oneself pregnant" sounds like mind over matter, or a miracle. Anyhow, the rest of the sentence shows that indeed she was pregnant. Nowadays I think most people would say "Caroline discovered she was pregnant." Sca (talk) 14:10, 15 June 2012 (UTC) 1. You are right but I don't think she could have discovered it. There was no way pregnancy could be proven in its early stage back then. Mary I of England thought herself pregnant too yet it turned out to be a deadly tumor. How about "Caroline realised she might be pregnant"? That part is not really neccessary anyway, since, as you say, she was indeed pregnant and eventually gave birth. Surtsicna (talk) 14:28, 15 June 2012 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Your fomulation would be fine, but maybe the whole sentence is irrelevant? Sca (talk) 01:14, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
Why is this article titled "Caroline of Ansbach" when the first sentence of the article tells us that she is "Caroline of Brandenburg-Ansbach"? —Lowellian (reply) 19:26, 15 June 2012 (UTC) 1. I suppose it's because an overwhelming majority of sources refer to her as Caroline of Ansbach, while "Caroline of Brandenburg-Ansbach" is technically more correct. Surtsicna (talk) 21:04, 15 June 2012 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Then the article intro should explain that; otherwise, the article looks misnamed. I've gone ahead and added a small note. —Lowellian (reply) 05:09, 16 June 2012 (UTC)
DrKiernan oops, sorry about ec. for me uncited sources are still sources, but change it back if you prefer, i also used the cite ODNB rather than citation. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 20:23, 9 September 2014 (UTC)
She is the first Princess of Wales to go directly to being Queen Consort. Should this be mentioned somewhere? Robin S. Taylor (talk) 12:26, 28 June 2018 (UTC) 1. Not without a source. Not because it's wrong, but because we don't include every fact about her. We only include the pertinent facts that any summary biography of her would contain. DrKay (talk) 16:33, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
Just looking at the several recent edits, mainly to the second para in this article. There is clearly some confusion about the status of her father and that of the principality where she was born. In fact, Ansbach (or Brandenburg-Ansbach to give it its full name) was part of the Holy Roman Empire - not Prussia. Her father was John Frederick, the Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach. He died when Caroline was three. The Elector Frederick III of Brandenburg became Caroline's guardian and gave her a temporary home in Berlin. When Caroline was 11, her mother married Elector John George IV of Hanover, who became Caroline step-father. Also, I don't think it's correct to refer to Caroline as a Margravine. Her mother was a Margravine before her first husband's death, and became an Electress after her second marriage. Caroline eventually became Electress of Hanover, but as a result of her marriage to George Augustus. I hope the above might help with the aforementioned edits. My main source for th...

Caroline nació el 1 de marzo de 1683 en Ansbach , hija de John Frederick, margrave de Brandenburg-Ansbach , y su segunda esposa, la princesa Eleonore Erdmuthe de Saxe-Eisenach . Su padre era el gobernante de uno de los estados alemanes más pequeños; murió de viruela a la edad de 32 años, cuando Caroline tenía tres años. Caroline y su único hermano completo, su hermano menor, el margrave William Frederick , dejaron Ansbach con su madre, quien regresó a su natal Eisenach . En 1692, la madre viuda de Caroline se vio obligada a contraer matrimonio infeliz con el elector de Sajonia , y ella y sus dos hijos se trasladaron a la corte sajona de Dresde . Eleonore Erdmuthe volvió a enviudar dos años más tarde, después de que su marido infiel contrajera la viruela de su amante. Eleonore permaneció en Sajonia durante otros dos años, hasta su muerte en 1696. Los huérfanos Caroline y William Frederick regresaron a Ansbach para quedarse con su medio hermano mayor, el margrave George Frederick II ....
Caroline, una mujer inteligente y atractiva, era muy buscada como esposa. La viuda electora Sophia la llamó "la princesa más agradable de Alemania". Fue considerada para la mano del Archiduque Carlos de Austria , quien fue candidato al trono de España y más tarde se convirtió en Emperador del Sacro Imperio Romano Germánico. Carlos le hizo propuestas oficiales en 1703, y el rey Federico de Prusia alentó el partido. Después de algunas consideraciones, Caroline se negó en 1704, ya que no se convertiría del luteranismo al catolicismo. A principios del año siguiente, la reina Sofía Charlotte murió en una visita a su nativa Hannover. Caroline estaba devastada y le escribió a Leibniz: "La calamidad me ha abrumado con el dolor y la enfermedad, y es sólo la esperanza de poder seguirla pronto lo que me consuela". En junio de 1705, el sobrino de la reina Sofía Charlotte, el príncipe George Augustus de Hannover , visitó la corte de Ansbach, supuestamente de incógnito, para inspeccionar a Caroli...
George Augustus navegó a Inglaterra en septiembre de 1714, y Caroline y dos de sus hijas lo siguieron en octubre. Su viaje a través del Mar del Norte desde La Haya hasta Margate fue el único viaje por mar que hizo en su vida. Su hijo pequeño, el príncipe Federico, permaneció en Hannover durante el resto del reinado de Jorge Ipara que lo criaran tutores privados. Tras la adhesión de Jorge I en 1714, el marido de Caroline se convirtió automáticamente en duque de Cornualles y duque de Rothesay . Poco después, fue investido como Príncipe de Gales , tras lo cual ella se convirtió en Princesa de Gales. Caroline fue la primera mujer en recibir el título al mismo tiempo que su esposo recibió el suyo. Fue la primera princesa de Gales en más de doscientos años, siendo la última Catalina de Aragón . Como George I había repudiado a su esposa Sophia Dorothea de Celle en 1694 antes de que se convirtiera en rey de Gran Bretaña, no había reina consorte, y Caroline era la mujer de más alto rango en...
Caroline se convirtió en reina consorte tras la muerte de su suegro en 1727, y fue coronada junto a su esposo en la Abadía de Westminster el 11 de octubre de ese año. Fue la primera reina consorte en ser coronada desde Ana de Dinamarca en 1603. Aunque Jorge II denunció a Walpole como un "pícaro y sinvergüenza" por los términos de la reconciliación con su padre, Caroline le aconsejó a su esposo que mantuviera a Walpole como el primer ministro. Walpole tenía una mayoría sustancial en el Parlamento y George II no tuvo más remedio que aceptarlo o arriesgarse a la inestabilidad ministerial. Walpole consiguió un pago de lista civil de 100.000 libras esterlinas al año para Caroline, y le dieron tanto Somerset House como Richmond Lodge. El cortesano Lord Hervey llamó a Walpole "el ministro de la Reina" en reconocimiento a su estrecha relación. Durante los siguientes diez años, Caroline tuvo una inmensa influencia. Ella persuadió al rey para que adoptara políticas a instancias de Walpole, y...
A mediados de 1735, Federico, Príncipe de Gales, se sintió aún más consternado cuando Caroline, en lugar de él mismo, volvió a actuar como regente mientras el rey estaba ausente en Hannover. El rey y la reina arreglaron el matrimonio de Federico, en 1736, con la princesa Augusta de Sajonia-Gotha . Poco después de la boda, George fue a Hannover y Caroline retomó su papel de "protectora del reino". Como regente, Caroline consideró el indulto del capitán John Porteous , que había sido condenado por asesinato en Edimburgo. Antes de que pudiera actuar, una turba irrumpió en la cárcel donde estaba detenido y lo mató. Caroline estaba horrorizada. Las ausencias del rey en el extranjero estaban provocando impopularidad y, a finales de 1736, hizo planes para regresar, pero su barco se vio atrapado por un mal tiempo y se rumoreaba que se había perdido en el mar. Caroline estaba devastada y disgustada por la insensibilidad de su hijo, quien organizó una gran cena mientras soplaba el vendaval. D...
Ruby2010 talk 21:25, 28 March 2011 (UTC) Princess of Wales, "Caroline struck up a friendship with politician Sir Robert Walpole. In 1720, he and Caroline helped to effect a reconciliation between the King and her husband." Again, an abrupt jump.
Caroline of Brandenburg-Ansbach (Wilhelmina Charlotte Caroline; 1 March 1683 – 20 November 1737 ) was Queen consort of Great Britain as the wife of King George II.
