With the movie "A Royal Affair" in theaters, here's a profile "Mad Monarchist" did about the English born Caroline Matilda, Queen of Denmark:
Horrible that her husband the King was having mental problems!

Thanks, princess! Here is my post on the film: http://teaattrianon.blogspot.com/2012/11/a-royal-affair-2012.html It looks beautiful.

But what a sad story....

The real Caroline Matilda of England, sister of George III.
Our Danish friend Sara tells of the tragic life of the Queen of Denmark.
On the 8th of December 1766...Caroline Mathilde, daughter of Frederick, Prince of Wales and Augusta of Saxe-Gotha, married her Danish cousin in The Church of Our Lady (Vor Frue Kirke). She was fifteen, her husband sixteen and a king of all of six months. Caroline Mathilde had grown up apart from her brother’s court, due to her mother’s widowhood and was by all accounts a sheltered, young woman who had been transplanted in a strange environment under the expectation that she would easily understand how to maneuver herself. Christian VII, her husband, had grown up in the midst of a court in turmoil, with his father’s wife more or less openly disliking him. He was subject to physical punishment throughout all of his childhood – which promptly ended when he was 16 and his father died. The young man suffered from nervous breakdowns, bouts of schizophrenia and mania. He was diagnosed with dementia praecox and was fully expected to recover from it as he grew older.

Of course, this is no fairy-tale story.
