British Monarch. She was the Queen consort of King George II. Daughter of Johann Friedrich, margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach. She married George, electorate of Hanover, in September of 1705. They ascended the throne of England in 1727. Theirs was a successful marriage, despite George's mistresses, and she bore 12 children, 8 of whom survived. Beautiful and intelligent, she was very popular with the people, and was involved in matters of state more than any other queen since the Middle Ages. A popular satirical verse of the time went "You may strut, dapper George, but 'twill all be in vain, We all know 'tis Queen Caroline, not you, that reign". She died at the age of 54 of complications following a rupture of the womb.
