  Princess Amelia of Great Britain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
HRH Princess Amelia of Great Britain ( 7 August 1783 - November 2, 1810), was the youngest and favorite daughter of George III of the United Kingdom by Queen consort Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.
Amelia and her sisters Charlotte, Augusta Sophia, Elizabeth, Mary and Sophia were over-protected and isolated, which restriced their meeting eligible suitors of their own age.
Amelia fell in love with Sir Charles Fitzroy, an equerry 21 years older than her, but was forbidden to marry him by her mother Queen Charlotte.

The treaty itself was formed on great consideration and a thorough knowledge of all circumstances, the subject matter of every article having been for years under discussion and repeated references having been made by the minister of Spain to his Government on the points respecting which the greatest difference of opinion prevailed.
The great reduction in the price of the principal articles of domestic growth which has occurred during the present year, and the consequent fall in the price of labor, apparently so favorable to the success of domestic manufactures, have not shielded them against other causes adverse to their prosperity.
The great object to be accomplished is the restraint of that ardor by such wise regulations and Government as, by directing all the energies of the youthful mind to the attainment of useful knowledge, will keep it within a just subordination and at the same time elevate it to the highest purposes.

 George II of Great Britain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
George II (George Augustus) ( 10 November 1683 – 25 October 1760) was King of Great Britain and Ireland, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg (Hanover) and Archtreasurer and Prince-Elector of the Holy Roman Empire from 11 June 1727 until his death.
Great Britain, Hanover and Prussia were thus pitted against many major European powers, including Austria, Russia, France, Sweden and Saxony.
