Caroline of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel, later Queen Caroline (1768 – 1821), was the wife of George IV from 1795, and his queen consort from 29 January 1820 until her death. Shortly after giving birth to Princess Charlotte of Wales, Carolin and George separated, and after she moved to Italy in 1814 rumours surrounding her relationship with her servant Bartolomeo Pergami (also spelt Bergami) culminated in her trial for adultery in 1820. This portrait was published during the investigation.
For the trial, see ref. 13462; for Pergami, see refs. 131, 4335 and 11157
