Sophia of Hanover: Winter Princess by J.N. Duggan.

Sophia of Hanover: from Winter Princess to Heiress of Great Britain, 1630-1714

This biography of Sophia, Electress of Hanover (1630-1714) by J.N. Duggan shows her to be much more than a crucial link in the lineage of the English throne.

Her memoirs, which she wrote at the age of 50 and her correspondence which date from 1658 - quoted extensively for the first time in this volume - reveal a gifted and prolific chronicler of her times. They offer the reader a fascinating insider's view of life at the top echelons of society in the seventeenth and eighteenth century Europe: the politics, intrigue and daily life in the royal houses, to many of which she was related by blood or marriage.

The author has translated a considerable proportion of Sophia's writings from the original French and German. The volume also contains colour illustrations, index, bibliography, maps, family trees, selected letters. Together they provide a remarkable portrait of a remarkable woman.
