    One thought on “The Princess of Celle”

    1. This book is a sadly fascinating look at the topic of woman's inhumanity to woman, feudal German style. I picked it up because it is the beginning of the Georgian saga, and thus the beginning of Queen Caroline's story (Caroline being one of my favorite characters in Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle), but I feel like I was looking at the great women of Baroque era Germany through a funhouse mirror, and I suspect the author chiefly. Sophia of the Palatinate is portrayed as a vain, silly and rather [...]

    2. In the middle of this novel is a fairy tale gone horribly wrong - where the princess (Princess Sophia Dorothea) kisses a frog (George Louis of Hanover) and he stays a frog. Brought up in the lap of luxury and love, the sheltered child of a German Count and his French born wife, she proves to be an only child, and the heiress of quite the fortune. Because of this she is caught up in the dynastic machinations of those who do not value her for her sweetness, innocence and beauty.There are plenty of [...]

    3. Sophia Dorothea had a good childhood, was well loved by her parents, but was very unlucky in love. She became the wife of the first King George, but lived with him in Hanover until he became the king. This account shows him to be very uncouth. I had read years ago that he had never learned English, even though he was the king. This book says the same. Last year I had the pleasure of visiting Celle, saw the castle, enjoyed the town. didn't make it to Hannover. can't wait to read more in the serie [...]

    4. George Louis's mother was granddaughter to James I of England. At Queen Anne's death and his mother no longer alive ,George became George I of England, the first of the Hanover kings.He is portrayed as a boor with no manners and whose wife, Sophia Dorothea, was put in the castle Ahlden as a prisoner for more than thirty years. Though she was Queen of England she was never allowed to leave the castle in Germany. her son became George II of England

    5. This was the most soap operaish historical by Plaidy I've ever read and, I've read dozens of her books. It's primarily about the marital and romantic lives of King George I before he was king, his parents, his in-laws, and his wife. It's a sad story. There's a tiny bit of political and military history.

    6. Really enjoyed this first book in the Georgian series, have not read them for many years so decided to buy them again.

    7. This is a good book with a very likeable, strong villainess and tragic hero. It was off to a slow start, though. In the beginning, it read somewhat like a simple children's fable, but then got more interesting. This is a tragic story. George William refuses to be King of Bohemia, passing his birth right to his brother. He falls in love with a woman. They welcome Sophia Dorothea soon after, not yet the Princess of Celle. In time, after drawn negotiations with his brother Ernest and the emperor Ch [...]

    8. This book did get better towards the end, but the first 3/4 was written in a "she-said, he-said" sort of style, with little scene setting and description. It is almost as though the author had a dot point timeline of Sophia Dorothea's life and list of named relatives, then simply sketched tableau around them. Lifeless, stereotypical characters who performed perfunctory actions. Here we have the the innocent princess used as a pawn by her weak-willed father, the oafish husband, the scheming mistr [...]

    9. I didn't mind this book, which follows the story of a German princess who at 16 is married off to her evil cousin in an effort to unite the two families (and their wealth) together. She is such a tragic figure who would never be allowed to experience true love, and I grieve for all those women throughout history who were never allowed to live out their own lives. Plaidy is able to embody these sentiments in this story, and I applaud her for that.

    10. This was an interesting historical fiction book about the long suffering wife of George of Hanover (George I), Sophia Dorothea. The book went into quite a bit of detail about George and Sophia's parents, too, and it was a good historical fiction overview of politics in Germany in that period. It's always striking to me how sad the lives of many historical figures actually were.

    11. First the app says this is only ten pages in length, it is not. The copy I own is almost 400 pages in length which is actually better in my opinion. The story is interesting and really captures your attention. Very much a twisted fairy tale.
