Fact of the Day: Charlotte

The city of Charlotte, North Carolina is named after King George III's wife Charotte. She was Queen of Great Britain for many decades and her sons became kings after their father as King George IV and William IV.

I'm amazed that she had 15 children! And 13 survived until adulthood. Wow! Sad that her husband went insane toward the end of their lives though. That's really hard.

Charlotte's dress does not accommodate any kind of bloat. Poor Charlotte.

Feel sorry she had to wear such an ugly and restraining dress!
