Augusta of Hanover
Birth: Nov. 8, 1768

Greater London, England
Death: Sep. 22, 1840
St James
City of Westminster

British Royalty. Princess of Great Britain and Ireland, Princess of Hanover, Duchess of Brunswick and Luneberg. Born Princess Augusta Sophia, she was the sixth child and second daughter of King George III and Queen Charlotte. Said to be the most even-tempered, family-minded, and self-confident of the king's six daughters. Young Augusta's hopes for marriage were dashed by her father, who turned down suitor after suitor for all his daughters. She never married, but historians speculate she may have had a long-term affair with one of her father's equerries, General Sir Brent Spencer. Augusta contented herself with being involved in the lives of all her brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews. She died at Clarence house at the age of 72. (bio by: Kristen Conrad)
