 About the Book 

History reveals two curious details about Queen Charlotte consort to George III: first, her official coronation portrait shows a woman with distinct mulatto features- second, the Royal Physician to her granddaughter, Queen Victoria, wrote about herMoreHistory reveals two curious details about Queen Charlotte consort to George III: first, her official coronation portrait shows a woman with distinct mulatto features- second, the Royal Physician to her granddaughter, Queen Victoria, wrote about her in his memoir: “She had a true mulatto face.”But if Queen Charlotte was a mulatto, how did this happen?Mulatto Queen answers this question. Along the way we meet Voltaire, Samuel Johnson, Czar Peter the Great, Liebniz- and finally, the mysterious African long-rumored to be Queen Charlottes biological father.No stodgy historical drama, Mulatto Queen is a hypnotic, breakneck romp through King George III’s England. Think: The Da Vinci Code meets Roots …The characters are heroic, cowardly, desperately funny, disturbingly neurotic. What with their wedding-cake high wigs, rampant alcoholism, bloodlust for public executions, addiction to snuff, penchant for gluttony, the appearance of a 17-year old mulatto girl and King George’s instant attraction to her caused a scandal – and a cover-up! – that persists to this day.
