Person Female Born 1/3/1683 Died 20/11/1737
Queen consort of George II. Born Ansbach. She and her husband came to Britain in 1714 when he became heir presumptive to the English throne. Politically aligned with Robert Walpole. She acted as Regent when George was away in Hanover on four occasions. She had a big impact on the look of London when she acquired the western section of Hyde Park to add to her gardens at Kensington Palace. She had the Long Water and the Serpentine created from the ponds that were already there, and built a ha-ha to keep deer and other undesirables out of her garden. A queen with a happy marriage, not to be confused with Caroline of Brunswick who unhappily married King George IV.
