Caroline of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel [1] (17 May 1768 7 August 1821) as Queen Caroline was the Queen Consort of King George IV of the United Kingdom from 29 January 1820 to her death.
Caroline was born on 17 May 1768 at Brunswick (German:Braunschweig) in Germany, daughter of Karl William, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel and Princess Augusta Charlotte of Wales, eldest sister of King George III.

 Review - The Unruly Queen
Caroline, unfortunately, was immature for her 25 years and in spite of her attractiveness - in her youth she actually resembled Diana Spencer - she had absolutely no sense of style and was often slovenly in her dress - something the meticulous and stylish Prinny could not forgive.
George and Caroline soon found they had almost nothing in common and soon came to detest each other and began leading separate lives almost as soon as their only child, Princess Charlotte, was born.
Caroline became a rallying symbol for liberals and radicals and her reactionary husband (who had been a liberal as a young man) could not forgive this, either.

 Gladden, 'Shelley's Agenda Writ Large: Reconsidering Oedipus Tyrannus; or, Swellfoot the Tyrant' - Reading Shelley's ...
In his letter, Shelley acknowledges that Queen Caroline not only occupies a central role in the English imagination, but, more importantly, that her very public opposition to King George and his "odious" ministers causes her to figure politically.
Queen Caroline's two bodies—her real, physical self, and her textual body which is anatomized, pathologized, and pornographized throughout countless arms of the radical press—coalesce in the image of the symbolic revolutionary whose politicized physicality compromises the constitutional power of King George and his court.
In Queen Caroline, Shelley recognizes the political implications of sexual transgression, for in her status as an oppositional icon she demonstrates the power of the perverse erotic body to intrude upon the political process by exposing the problematic nature of an entrenched, oppressive regime.
